We’re inviting key stage 2 (age 7 to 11) school children from across the UK to help us re-design our own-brand, free-range, medium (6 pack) egg boxes and learn about the journey of a Co-op egg in the process. And we want as many schools as possible to take part!

We’ve worked with National Schools Partnership and created a really fun lesson plan for teachers to access that will help children learn all about egg production from farm to fork and also learn some great new design skills too.

At the end the children have the opportunity to use the information and the art and design techniques that they’ve learned to create and enter their own design for our medium (6 pack) egg boxes. The winning designs will be seen on over 2.5m boxes of eggs!

We’ll pick winners from England, Scotland and Wales/Northern Ireland and we’ve got some great prizes to share.

The budding artists of the winning designs will have their label printed on some Co-op egg boxes and sold in stores across the UK! They’ll also receive £1000 in coupons to buy art supplies for their school.* And we’ll invite them up to our Support Centre at 1 Angel Square to collect their prize.

The 2nd place design will receive £500 in coupons to be used to purchase art supplies for their school.* and 3rd Place will receive £250 in coupons*

The competition is open now and completed designs must be received by Monday 15th October.

We’d love to see as many schools as possible taking part so please share the details with your children’s/grandchildren’s/local schools and ask them to visit the National Schools Partnerships website for full details of our Free Range Art competition.

I can’t wait to see what creative ideas we receive! I’ll share the winning designs with you later in the year and then you’ll see the winning designs in store from February.

    Is there any way we can print PDF of the details to take round to local schools?
    Thanks Fiona

  2. Marvellous idea. Co-operation at it’s finest. Children’s involvement with a Co-op initiative, future members, colleagues and families as well. Round of applause for whomever thought of this idea.

    • Hi Lyn,
      I’m afraid that the entry packs that we had printed have already been sent out to schools. Schools are able to download the packs from the website referenced in the article when they register their interest though.
      If you can share the details of the website with them that would be great 🙂
