Network Packaging sponsors Express & Star Design an Ad Competition

We’re excited to announce that we’re sponsoring the Express & Star’s 2018 Design an Ad Competition.

What’s the competition about?

Each year the Express & Star, along with local business, challenge youngsters from local primary schools to get creative and design an advert or a product for local business.

The children that take part are aged 4 – 11. Each primary school involved is sponsored by a company from across Staffordshire and the Black Country.

One design will be selected from each school and be entered into competition to win a top prize of £500 for the school.

Can you get involved?

Yes! If you’re local to the area, you’ll be able to for the winning design. The Express & Star will be publishing the winning entries in a special supplement at the end of April and be asking for your help to choose the design that deserves the grand prize. Keep an eye out for it!

Investing in the local community

As Network Packaging is based in the Bilston area, we’re proud to be sponsoring St. Martin’s CE Primary School.

Charlotte Hardy, our Marketing Manager, says “It’s really important for us to be involved in local community, which is why we jumped at the chance to get involved in with Design an Ad Competition.

We’ve asked the children to come up with ideas for recycling packaging and we can’t wait to see the designs!

Assistant Headteacher for St. Martin’s, Gary Fereday, added “We are delighted to be taking part in the Express & Star Design an Ad competition and working on behalf of Network Packaging.

The pupils are already coming up with ideas on how to recycle packaging and we are looking forward to seeing who Network Packaging will choose as the winner.” 

Good luck to everyone involved

We’d like to wish the best of luck to all the schools and students involved in the competition. The top prize winner will be announced on 4th July at ceremony held in the Grand Theatre.
