Get designing for the Tour of Britain

The Tour of Britain is coming to Northumberland in September, and school children are being invited to take part in a competition to design a Northumberland-themed cycling jersey. A cycling jersey is a specially designed T-shirt which is made from synthetic material to keep the cyclist cool. The jersey might also include a design or colours which show which team the rider is a part of. The winning design will printed, framed and presented to the child’s school, and there are three age categories- Reception to Year 4, Year 5-8 and Year 9 onwards. A prize of £10,000 will be shared among the winning schools to be spent on sporting activities and school trips.   

The closing date for the competition is 15th July. For more information visit
