We had loads of great entries to our kids design competition. After some heated debates and a few sulks, we whittled them down to a shortlist of finalists and our grand judge, children's author Lauren Child, then chose the overall winners.
Each winner not only gets a year's supply of smoothies and a visit to their school from one of our DGVs, their designs will also feature on our kids smoothies cartons this summer.
You can see all the winners and runners up in a bit more detail in our winners gallery but for their world premiere, we thought it only right to showcase the winning entries right here:
Top prize winner: Holly J aged 7 Favourite fruit: Strawberry
Well done to Holly. The judges were particularly impressed by her astronaut dude as well as her activity of making a walkie talkie from two kids cartons and a bit of string. This was rigorously tested in our car park by Tansy who can confirm it works a treat.
Top prize winner: Max H, aged 9 Favourite fruit: Peach
Lovely use of colour and a keen eye for detail in this design by Max. The judges also liked the fact you needed a friend to play the fruit tasting game with and that in the process, you got to try lots of different fruit as well.
Top prize winner: Lizzie N, aged 12. Favourite Fruit: Cherry
What a cracking idea by Lizzie. The judges just loved how she made Sudoku into Frudoku. Some really good drawings of fruit along with an excellent bearded lady dude made this entry our designer Kat's overall favourite.
Top prize winner: Charlotte E, aged 16 Favourite fruit: Mango
The judges liked the idea of of combining making something cool with recycling. Charlotte's idea to make your own bin out of a smoothie box means you get 'a cool bin and a cleaner planet'. We couldn't have put it better ourselves, Charlotte.
Thanks to everyone who entered and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for these winning designs on shelf this summer.
