With the closing date for entries for the biggest art competition of the year on the horizon, Aer Lingus and Ni4kids are encouraging budding designers in primary schools across Northern Ireland, to get their entries in by February 19, 2016.
The annual competition is open to all children in Primary Four, Five and Primary
Six classes and this year the challenge is to design a new pilot’s uniform (male or female) for the crew on the Aer Lingus ‘Green Spirit’ aircraft.
Entries have been steadily arriving since November and 85 schools from all counties across the province have registered to enter the competition so far. As the standard of work is once again so high this year, we’ve decided to showcase some of the entries.*
Andrea Hunter, Business Development Manager at Aer Lingus said; “We are delighted to have received so many entries to our annual art competition from all over Northern Ireland.
“I can tell that this year it will be as difficult as ever to pick just one winner. We really appreciate all of the hard work that the teachers and children have put into this competition, which is clear from the quality of entries that Ni4kids has received.
“I would encourage any school that hasn’t yet entered to do so as we are offering an amazing day trip to London again this year, for the winning class.
Nadia Duncan, Editor of Ni4Kids, added; “We love seeing all the fantastic designs that are flying into our office at the moment, it’s going to be a really tough decision to choose just one. This is a wonderful opportunity for primary schools, but remember we must receive your entry for you to be in with a chance to be jetting off to London, so teachers please make sure you send in your favourite class design before the final closing date.”
For schools that have not
yet registered to enter the competition, this is your last chance to submit their entries to be in with the chance to win the school trip of a lifetime!
