Promethean’s classroom stories competition now open for entries

The much-loved edtech contest that sees schools submit video entries in the hope of winning a Promethean ActivPanel has returned

Celebrating all that’s great about education across the UK and Ireland, Promethean® is inviting schools to take part in its Classroom Stories competition for a chance to win an ActivPanel® package worth over £3,000.

Promethean is searching for the most passionate, innovative and imaginative schools to share a video entry of their inspiring education stories, with 20 lucky classrooms receiving an ActivPanel Elements Series package.

Over the past four years, Promethean has awarded more than £100,000 in edtech prizes to schools around the UKI region.

Jim Wallis, head of UKI Markets at Promethean, has been a regular on the judging panel since 2017. Commenting on why he is so excited about viewing this year’s entries, he said: “We want to help schools recognise the wonderful work they do, not just over the last year, but in shaping and inspiring generations of students. I’m thoroughly looking forward to seeing the video entries this year and learning more about the impact and importance of positivity within education.”

This year Jim will be joined by two guest judges – Teacher of the Year and previous Promethean #ClassroomStory winner, Alex Bramley; and Andrew Murden, board member at education technology association Naace.

“As a teacher, positivity and passion run true in everything I do, and I believe that this attitude to teaching and learning can encourage students to engage in and enjoy their studies. I was fortunate enough to win an ActivPanel package back in 2019 in Promethean’s #ClassroomStory competition, and it has revolutionised my classroom activities. When Promethean invited me to be a guest judge for this year’s competition, I was thrilled, and I am really looking forward to seeing the wonderful work of my educational peers across the country and being inspired by their stories,” commented Alex Bramley.

  • Entries must be submitted in video format
  • Entries will be judged on passion, innovation and imagination
