#Transform My Truck: deadline day looms!

If you’re a budding artist with an interest in logistics who hasn’t yet submitted their entry to one of the biggest, most exciting, schools’ competitions in the North West, then we thought we’d better remind you that the Transform My Truck deadline day is looming. The competition closes just before midnight on June 22nd, so if you haven’t sent us your masterpiece yet, then you’d better get your skates on.

There’s no need to panic, however, as you’ve still got a couple of days to get your thinking caps on. So, don’t waste the chance. Dazzle us with your drawing and painting skills. The standard has so far surpassed anything we had expected. The quality of painting and drawings we’ve received has been superb, and the interest we’ve received from children, schools and parents across the North West has been truly overwhelming. All we can say is thank you, and keep up the good work.

What is the #Transform My Truck competition? 

If you haven’t yet come across it, #Transform My Truck is an amazing arts competition which aims to inspire young people to think about logistics: and by that we mean, what it’s all about and how it affects every aspect of our lives in one way or another?  So TTA is asking young people from schools across the North West to use their imaginations, creative skills and talents to translate their thoughts and ideas into an art work that can be proudly displayed on the side of a blank 7 metre rigid truck. What we’re looking for are designs which show the different forms of transport used to get goods from one location to another: that includes all forms of transport, from forklift trucks to airplanes and everything in between.

Who can enter the ‘#Transform My Truck’ competition?

The competition is open to all school children in the region. Two winning designs will be chosen: one from the Under 12 age category, and the other from the 13 to 16 age range. The two winning artists will not only have the satisfaction of having their design proudly displayed on one side of our truck, but will also win a £100 Amazon voucher and a grant of up to £500 for their schools. TTA will also be offering runner-up prizes in both categories: £50 worth of Amazon vouchers and a £300 school grant for second places, and £30 worth of Amazon vouchers and a £200 school grant for third places.

During the campaign Transport Training Academy’s blank truck has visited schools across the region; from Blackburn, Burnley, Pendle and Chorley, to Liverpool, Manchester, Whitefield and Prestwich, to name but few. On our school visits we’ve given pupils the chance to take part in an interactive workshop where they learned about the logistics sector and the varied career paths and opportunities that are available within the industry.

The competition closing date is 11.59pm on Friday 22nd June. Judging will take place by 13th July and the winners will be announced on 16th July. The winning truck designs will be unveiled in September, 2018.
