‘Create an Ad’ competition proves a huge success for 2017


Let’s Go! magazine is once again celebrating the success of our school competition ‘Create and Ad.’ The annual competition which  turns Wirral primary schools into Advertising Agencies and pairs them with local businesses was as popular as ever.  We challenged year 6 students at 11 primary schools to create an advert for their sponsoring company. Each student created an advert and a winner was chosen by their sponsor for inclusion within the magazine. Each winning designer received a certificate from their sponsor company and their advert was entered into our grand final, where an overall winner was chosen by a panel of advertising and design experts.

Ella’s advert for the Grange and Pyramids shopping centre in Birkenhead was ‘colourful, well drawn and carried a succinct message, highlighting the new and improved car parking facilities’. Our runner up was Faye Harrison, a pupil at Our Lady and Saint Edwards Primary in Birkenhead who designed an advert for Merseyrail highlighting its heritage. Third place went to Max Hall of Poulton Lancelyn Primary in Spital. Max’s advert celebrated the 10th birthday of Wirral’s most innovative party venue,  The Ladybugs Picnic.
