Design and win Olympics inspired stickers for your school's Sports Day!

Welcome to our web site and the details of our Sussex Primary School Competition in association with the West Sussex County Times, partner papers and the Enable Me Project.

Here are some very good reasons you should enter!


Three winning schools will receive:

  • 1000 stickers printed to your school's design - perfect for your Sports Day!
  • 25 metres of sports design classroom borders to create a stunning in-school display of your children's work
  • a 20% discount off orders with Classroom Capers valid for 6 months
  • Local Discus Paralympian, Seb Trezise, will be taking time out of his busy training schedule to judge the competition
  • EVERY school that enters has three chances to win by entering each year group (Reception, KS1, KS2). Plus, all non-winning entrants will have the option of printing their sticker designs at a special discount rate so all your children's effort can be rewarded.
  • Support Charity - profits raised from the competition will be donated by Classroom Capers to the local Enable Me, disability awareness Charity. Find out more about the Enable Me Project here.


  • Enhance your Olympics topic with a challenge!

    With most schools planning an Olympics based topic this term, this competition provides a fun, creative activity that will stimulate children to think about the winning and participating aspects of the event.
    The challenge is to design an Olympics inspired, sports day sticker set that depict 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners and a generic, participation reward sticker – stickers the children would wear with pride at your School’s sports day.
    Open to Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children, each school can enter a set of stickers for each year group, so that’s 3 chances to win for every school!

    The Competition Outlined

    Schools can challenge any/all of their year groups (Reception, KS1, KS2) to create a set of three placement stickers plus one generic participation sticker using a design inspired by the Olympics and Team GB. The school then selects which stickers to enter as their year group ‘set’ into the competition. The set includes 4 sticker designs, one set per year group, as follows:
  • Sticker 1 = “1st Place” or “First Place” or “Gold”
  • Sticker 2 = “ 2nd Place” or “Second Place” or “Silver”
  • Sticker 3 = “ 3rd Place” or “Third Place” or “Bronze”
  • Sticker 4 = “Sports Star” or “Olympic Effort!”

  • Download your Application Form and Sticker Template here. Please note that the template contains oversized circles for your pupils to design in. The artwork will be reduced in size to fit the actual size which is 35mm diameter (example size shown on the template).

    The Judge
    Local wheelchair athlete and aspirant Paralympian, Seb Trezise, Sports Officer Officer at Enable Me is the official judge for competition entries. Ranked number 2 in Great Britain and 22 in the World for Discus, Seb is taking time out of his busy training schedule to support the competition.

    The Prizes
    The three winners (one for each year group) will each receive:
  • 1000 stickers that include each of their winning sticker set
  • 25 metres of a Classroom Caper’s exclusive, Sports Day border to frame in school displays of the children’s work
  • AND a Classroom Capers 20% discount code valid for 6 months.

    Everyone a winner!
    Every entrant to the competition has the option of printing their entries at a discounted rate - so even if your school doesn’t win the Sussex competition, you can opt to print your entries and reward your children’s effort by using their printed sticker designs at your school’s sports event. Remember all profits raised will be donated by Classroom Capers to Sport Relief.

    Do we have to enter every year group in the competition?
    No. Schools can enter any or all of year group’s in the competition. So, for example, if you wish only the Recception class to participate, that’s fine – the only stipulation is that you have to enter a complete set of stickers, a set being 3 placement stickers and 1 generic sticker.

    Can we win more than once?
    Yes! There is only one winner per year group, however schools that enter more than one year group are eligible to win for each year group entry.

    Are there any design guidelines / stipulations?
    Yes, please read the following important information:
  • Size - To ensure consistency of size between entries, please use the sticker template file provided. The actual size of the stickers to be printed will be 35mm – the (oversized) circle template, will be scanned and then reduced in size to fit the actual sticker size. Reducing the original artwork will create a ‘crisper’ final image when printed.
  • Colour – Feel free to use any medium to create the design (crayon, felt tip, pencil). However, remember the brighter and bolder the artwork, the more the design will stand out.
  • Content – There is a choice of placement and generic titles within each sticker set – please use one of the titles listed e.g. “1st Place” or “First Place” or “Gold”.

  • How and where do we send our entries too?
    1. - Please complete the downloadable application form and enclose the form with your entry/entries.
    2. - Write the child’s name, age and school on either the reverse of each piece of artwork or attach a note with this detailed to it. Please note, that unless otherwise informed, winning children’s names will be published next to their entry in the newspaper.
    3. - Post your artwork (carefully!) to arrive no later than the 19th June to:
      Olympic Sticker Competition
      PO Box 2250
      Pulborough

    Who can I contact with other questions?
    Please direct any further questions to Joanne Chandler at Classroom Capers, either via email jo@classroomcapers.co.uk or by phone 0800 058 8105.

    Will our artwork be returned?
    Of course! We know how precious these designs are and will return them to the address on the contact form. Should you wish to you have your designs printed, we will need to hold on to your original artwork until they have been scanned and printed but will ensure they are returned as soon as possible.

    Can we purchase the Sports Border so we can make an in-house display?
    Yes, borders can be purchased by the metre (min 5m) here. Children love to see their work displayed and we think this Olympics inspired sports border is perfect for the job!
