It's time for STAEDTLER's Big School Sketchathon
A 2022 report found that the screen time of children aged 6-10 has increased by an average of 1hr 24mins a day since the pandemic. In response to this, Staedtler designed the Big School Sketchathon — an unplugged, pencil-to-paper challenge to help your pupils' young minds rest and grow.
Designed to take place for one month from 08 November, pupils can take part in the Sketchathon during school hours or break times, at after school clubs, or at home — all to be in with a chance of winning an amazing stationery bundle for their school.
✅ £200 worth of stationery for their school
✅ An official runner up certificate
✅ A personal STAEDTLER goody bag. What's more, on behalf of the first 1,500 entrants, we will donate £1 to Place2Be — a children's mental health charity which offers practical support for the wellbeing of pupils and teachers in UK schools.
