Did you sometimes wish your school uniform had a seal that would hide ink stains and the mess you had dribbling down your chin during school dinners? I know I did. Especially during the early years of my education, I would come home covered in ink blobs as we learned writing with a fountain pen instead of a pencil or ball pen. While it helped me develop my letter writing and my handwriting skills over all, it was the bane of my mum’s existence throughout my primary school years as it meant man-high piles of washing.
If your kids are anything like me back then, dreaming about creating their own school uniform that will never fail them, then I’ve got news for you. High street retailer Marks & Spencer are asking children to get creative and invent the school uniform of their dreams. Glow in the dark blazers, hovering backpacks or trousers that go from short to long depending on the weather? Let your imagination run wild and create the school uniform you’ve always wanted to wear.
To enter, simply share your invention over on the Marks & Spencer competition website and be in with the chance of winning the trip of your lifetime. The winner of the competition will get to take their parents and a friend/or sibling to Orlando/Florida where they will visit Kennedy Space Centre and meet a real-life astronaut to find out all about life in space. Sound amazing? That’s not all! 20 runner ups will also win a £150 Marks & Spencer voucher that they can spend on whatever their heart desires, so get creative and yourselves involved. Why not have a brainstorming session with your best friends to see how many cool school uniform ideas you can up with between you? Definitely let me know in the comments below as I’d love to hear all about your invention. For now, good luck!
