A GLOBAL education company headquartered in Blackburn is giving schools the chance to win up to £60,000 in prizes.

Promethean, based on Whitebirk Industrial Estate, Lower Philips Road, produces educational software and is running to competition to give schools the chance to share their most innovative and imaginative education stories.

To enter the competition, known as Promethean Classroom Stories, schools will need to submit videos that show what is unique about their classroom and explain why it makes them proud, with a prize of one of 20 technology packages worth £3,000 each on offer.

Promethean head of UKI Jim Wallis said: “If the last 12 months have shown us anything, it’s that educators and students have an unbelievable amount of resilience.

"From working with our customers, we’ve seen incredible resolve and unwavering positivity, this is exactly what we want to celebrate with the Promethean Classroom Stories competition.

"We aim to give schools the opportunity to share their experiences and anything that has made them proud, with the 20 most passionate, innovative, and imaginative set to win.”

Over the past four years, Promethean says it has awarded a total of more than £100,000 in prizes, with previous winners including Tottington Primary School, All Saints Hesketh with Becconsall CE Primary, Coupe Green Primary, and Oak House Nursery all in the North West.

They have all previously won Promethean ActivPanel packages, which are interactive flat panel displays with software and tools to help teachers engage students in the classroom and support those learning from home in hybrid teaching scenarios.

In order to enter the competition, schools need to upload their videos to Promethean's website by June 25.

Alongside Mr Wallis on the judging panel will be Alex Bramley, a year 6 teacher and former Promethean competition winner, and Andrew Murden, board member at education technology association, Naace.
