Design Competition (Yrs 7-10) – Great Britain in 2050

How do you fancy winning yourself an 8Gb iPod Nano? (and you could also win an MPEG digital video camera for our school!) – if you are in Years 7 – 10 read on to find out how…

The Ordnance Survey are running a design competition based on the theme Mapping the future of Great Britain. They want to understand how you imagine Great Britain could look in the year 2050 (hence the theme – “Mapping the future of Great Britain”). You could consider a selection of the following issues – Environment, Seasons, Transport, Nature, Weather or you can come up with your own ideas.

A winner from each year group will receive an 8Gb iPod Nano and the overall winning school will win an MPEG digital video camera. The overall winning entry may also be used for the Ordnance Survey Corporate Christmas Card 2007.

You can enter a painting, drawing or collage on A4 or A3 paper – the style of artwork is free: coloured pencils, crayons, watercolours, pastels, cut paper etc. etc.

You must put your name, age and school address on the back of your entry and then fill in an entry form.
