Inspiring the future

Competition Time!

Become the next #PinYourThanks pin badge designer!

 #PinYourThanks is inviting children and young people aged 4-11 years across the nation to design a pin badge to help us all say thank you. The design should be inspired by someone who has helped your child or family over the last few months.

What will you win?

The competition will be judged by a team of Pin Your Thanks founders, designers, education professionals, star of Paddington, Hugh Bonneville and ex-England goal-keeper David James MBE! Full judging criteria is available here.

The winner will become an official badge designer and their design will be turned into a real pin badge which people can gift to their personal heroes. It will be available alongside our other beautiful badges, designed by some of the UK’s national treasures.

The winner will also:

  • Get the chance to send their winning badge to the person who inspired the design.
  • Receive a special copy of their badge, to keep for themselves alongside the other standard designs.

How to enter!

You can find all of the information you need to design the badge on the downloadable template here or in downloads at the bottom of the page.

All of our entries must be done online, this is because our fabulous post people are working super hard anyway at the moment and we don’t want to add to their load. We also want to make sure we get your entry as soon as possible! To make it as simple as possible for your wonderful grownups there are two ways to do this!

If you don’t have access to a printer, you can copy the template onto a blank sheet of paper at home.

Via the website:
Just ask your grownup to scan or take a photo of your design (on page 1 template) and upload it to our online form. When you’ve done this please ask them to complete all of the details on the form

By email:

A picture of your design template (your grownup can take this on their smartphone)
Your grownup's full name and address

Please note:

  • One entry per child.

Finally the boring bit…like all competitions, there are a few rules which you can find in full along with our terms and conditions here. Please also make sure that your grownup has read them before entering.
