As you are no doubt extremely busy in schools at the moment whilst leading up to the end of term, we thought that it might be be helpful to remind you about the up-and-coming closing date for our Seasonal Greetings Message Competition.

The competition closing date is the last day of term, Thursday the 19th of December so you still have a little over two weeks in order to get your entries in to us.

The competition details are reproduced below for your information:



Welcome to 123ICT’s Seasonal Greetings Competitions for 2019.  This year, we have divided this usually very popular annual challenge in to two separate competitions:

KS1. To create a seasonal greetings card which could be sent out to friends or family; using graphics for the illustration and adding text to create a cheery message.

KS2. Using Scratch to create an animated greetings message that could be augmented by audio.

The idea, for both competitions, is for the children to deliver a cheery seasonal message (KS1 in the form of a card, KS2 in the form of a Scratch animation) which could be used to convey seasonal greetings to friends or family.

The closing date for the Seasonal Greetings competitions is the end of the Autumn Term.


Awards and Prizes

This is the second of our new-style competitions and will attract points towards our fabulous new 123ICT Computing Champions League. The submitting schools for each competition will be awarded the following league points:

First Place – 60 Points
Second Place – 40 Points
Third Place – 20 Points

In addition, each school that enters the competition will be awarded 10 points and the first, second and third places will also receive certificates.



We will maintain and publish the league table throughout the year and at the end of the year, we will present, in addition to the Computing Champions League Winner’s Trophy, a very desirable prize to the winning school. The runner-up school will also receive an excellent prize and runners-up trophy. The prizes are currently being sought from our suppliers and full details will be announced on our competitions blog towards the middle of the academic year.
