We found our Bright Sparks winner!
14 December 2017
After lots of effort from schools and pupils and so many wonderful entries, we finally have a winner for our Bright Sparks ‘Design a Superhero’ competition.
Children were asked to create their own energy-related heroes as part of the Bright Sparks lesson plan with the aim of engaging young minds with the importance of energy in everyday life.
Comprised of a series of engaging lesson plans and activities, Bright Sparks is designed to help children get smart with energy. We believe that teaching children more about energy, where it comes from and how to use it more responsibly, is vital to shaping them for their role as energy users of the future.
The winning design is a superhero called Sun Star, designed by Year five pupil Daisy from Coppice Valley Primary School in Harrogate, as voted for by our team.
Our MD Jacqui said: “We’ve been totally wowed by the amazing creativity on show from Harrogate’s schoolchildren. The quality of the entries was so high that it was difficult to choose just one winner. Amongst the entries we had a superhero robot, Flash Bulb, who fought against energy waste; Super Granny, who knitted jumpers to reduce unnecessary consumption; and Lightening Speed, who made electricity with her hair!”
“Bright Sparks is all about making energy fun, encouraging young minds to get creative and introducing the importance of energy at an early age.”
The winning school has been awarded £500 worth of book vouchers, which were handed over in a special ceremony at our head office. Coppice Valley HLTA, Anne-Marie Haddington, said: “Daisy is thrilled to have won, and the vouchers will be incredibly useful for our school. Teaching from the Bright Sparks lesson-plan was a joy, and the creativity on-show from the pupils was amazing to see. I didn’t know energy could be so fun!”
