Maths in Motion Poster Competition Winners

Earlier this year, we ran a competition inviting children from Pre-School through to S3 to design a poster for this year's Maths Week Scotland theme, Maths in Motion. We received 125 entries, from nine different schools and nurseries across Scotland. It wasn't easy choosing the winners.

There were four different age categories, aligning with the Levels of the Scottish education curriculum. We made a short list, based on how well the poster designs had interpreted the theme, and then our colleagues from National Museum Scotland's Learning & Engagement department acted as an independent jury to cast the final votes.

In the end, we decided to pick not only the four winners, but also a runner-up for each age category. The eight chosen designs will be used in our social media campaign to count down to Maths Week Scotland, starting from next week, and one overall winner was also chosen whose design will be the new header for our social media channels.
