Digital collage competition: and the winner is….

Last month we set a challenge for our active UK Code Clubs.

The task? Create a digital collage of your favourite things using Scratch or HTML. Those who chose Scratch used our Tech Toys project as a starting point, while those who chose HTML kicked off with Stickers.

The prize?  The two winners will be honoured with a set of unique Code Club stickers inspired by their entry! Plus, a box of goodies including lanyards and T-shirts.

The result? Over 150 clubs sent us creative collages that warmed our judges’ hearts and showcased the impressive abilities of young coders from across the UK.

The winners

After much deliberation our judges have chosen two winners — one for Scratch and one for HTML.

Haseeb, 8, Hounslow Library

For the HTML entry, our winner is Haseeb from Hounslow Library! The judges were very impressed with Haseeb’s technical skills, including this use of animated bubbles and an embedded YouTube video in his collage. Plus they loved the choice of colours, and they felt like we really got to know Haseeb’s favourite hobbies.

Sam, 9, Fellside Community Primary School

As for Scratch, the winner is Sam from Fellside Community Primary School in Newcastle! Sam’s project fit the brief perfectly, and the idea of a beach filled with his favourite things made the judges smile. Plus Sam recorded his own audio introduction — great stuff!

Highly commended

Of course it’s impossible to choose just one favourite, so we would like to give a special shout out to the following projects:

Wormit Primary

We loved the approach the children from Wormit Primary in Scotland took in their HTML project, showcasing their favourite things about being at their school.

Redbridge Central Library

The judges really enjoyed the interactive aspect of the HTML entry from Redbridge Central Library Code Club in London — being able to draw on your own sticker is a great touch. Well done Ashwin, Labdhi, Ibrahim, Krisha, Sshubhan, Vuyo and Deepika!

Joel, Dexter, and Ryan; Meriden CE Primary School

Finally, we just had to give a special mention to this amazing Code Club theme tune from Joel, Dexter, and Ryan at Meriden CE Primary in Coventry. We’re so glad that Code Club is one of their favourite things!

 

A collection of Code Club swag including stickers, badges, and pens will soon be on it’s way to all the highly commended clubs.

Next time…

Plans for the next competition for active clubs are already brewing here at Code Club HQ! Make sure your club is activated so that you don’t miss out on any important emails.
