TTA unveils the winning Transform My Truck designs

The winning design released: 13-16 winner Grace Higginson (centre) with Transport Training Academy Directors David Coupe and Rachael Scanlin-Davis

Transport Training Academy was delighted to unveil its new-look truck on November 12th at its Atherton headquarters. The winning design by Grace Higginson, a pupil from Turton High School, is now proudly displayed on the side on one of TTA’s 30-foot trucks, thanks to a specially-made vinyl skin applied by Display Equipment Company in Bolton. We think you’ll agree with us that the redesigned truck looks absolutely stunning.

TTA’s Transform My Truck art competition was launched as part of a campaign to attract more young people into the logistics industry. TTA asked youngsters in the Under 12 and 13-16 age groups from schools right across the North West to submit creative designs which showed different ways of getting goods from A to B. As well as seeing their designs proudly displayed on the sides on one of our trucks, the winners also won themselves Amazon vouchers and cash grants for their school.

We thought the competition might prove popular with youngsters across the region, but we have to say we were overwhelmed by both the number – 350 in total – and standard of entries. We’d just like to say thank you once again to everyone who took part in the competition and submitted entries. 

In the Under 12 category a trio of creative and talented children from Heaton Park Primary School in Prestwich took first, second and third places. 11-year-old Kayla Blaine’s winning design was added to the side of the truck while Archie Dickson (10) and 12-year-old Lara Goodwin’s designs were added to the rear doors.

In the 13-16 age group, Grace Higginson, 13, from Turton High School took first place, with Tilly Daley (14) from Westholme Senior’s School taking second place and 15-year-old Rachael Duddle also from Turton School taking third place.

Speaking at the grand unveiling TTA Managing Director, David Coupe, said:

“We’re so pleased with our new-look truck – the designs have transferred really well from small A4 prints to a huge piece of art on wheels.”

“We hope our six winners will keep their eyes peeled for the truck they designed out and about on the roads near them – the vinyl transfers are designed to last for years to come and each winner has signed their artwork like all good artists do.”

“We hope that educating young people about the wide variety of career opportunities in logistics will encourage them to look into the sector and ultimately provide a boost to the UK economy.”
