Local design company launches product design competition for kids

Local design company, Duku, has launched a competition for budding product designers to create something to ‘brighten someone’s day’ during these uncertain times, with fantastic prizes up for grabs.

In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, Gloucestershire design company, Duku, has launched a competition for kids to create a product that would ‘brighten someone’s day’.

With Lego ‘creators kit’ prizes up for grabs, the competition is open for three age groups – under-fives; six- to 10-year olds; and 11- to 16-year olds. The overall winner across the categories will even get their design 3D printed by the team at Duku.

Designs need to fit inside a box, measured 32cmx25cmx20cm, and can be created on a tablet or with good old pens and paper.

The competition closes on Friday 10 April and all entries must be submitted online through Duku’s website.

For more information, call (01242) 697666.
