Well, we have certainly started 2017 in style as we recently received the news that we have been shortlisted for TWO education awards.

Our much-loved and already award-winning product, Paint Sticks, has made the shortlist in two categories at the highly-coveted Education Resources Awards (ERA) 2017, which will be held on Friday, March 17th, at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham.

We’re so excited as we look to add to our collection by scooping the Special Education Resource or Equipment award and the Early Years Resource or Equipment award.
Our very own sales director, Lara Alcock, couldn’t contain her delight at the recent news!

She said: “What a way to kick off 2017 and be shortlisted in not one but two categories.

“Being announced as finalists in Educational categories just shows how flexible Paint Sticks are, they are suited to everybody! Paint Sticks are perfectly sized for the hands of children and they not only help to develop the creativity of children, but also help to improve children’s motor-skills and co-ordination, vital during the early years of teaching.
“We really are over the moon with this nomination, we are delighted with the impact the brand made in its first year and we’ve certainly started 2017 on a high!”

The Education Resources Awards are now into their 18th year and they look to highlight and reward the quality and diversity of educational products, resources, services and people as well as the best educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession.

Lara added: “We’re determined to keep going from strength-to-strength, Paint Sticks have been extremely well received and I think the award nominations and wins are showing that.
“We won’t take a step back, we’re always looking to improve as we to strive for Paint Sticks to be the go to art resource”
