RESULTS ANNOUNCED - Design a Torch Competition



The results for our Blazing the Trail, Design a Torch Competition have been announced today. Congratulations go to Ryton Junior School who were selected  as overall winners by the judging panel. 

This announcement follows much deliberation by the judges. Due to the very high standard of entries the judges have also decided to select a KS1 winner and highly commend several other torch entries.

A list of both the winners and highly commended Olympic Torch designs can be found by following this link Competition_Results.doc 

All successful schools in this competition will receive both a certificate and be offered a visit from one of the actual torch bearers from the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay. These rewards are part of the Schools’ Challenge in Gateshead Council’s 'Going for Gold' campaign. We are working in partnership with the Sport, Wellbeing and Independence Department to negotiate and deliver this element of our BTT initiative whilst incorporating the Going for Gold, Schools’ Challenge.
