School competition 2023

Well done to everyone who took part in the Step into the NHS competition 2023-24!

Take a look at this year's fantastic winning entries. You sent some amazing pieces of work and we really enjoyed looking through them all!

Nearly 2,500 pupils from all over England sent in an incredible 1,483 entries to the competition. Students worked alone or in groups to research an NHS role and create a job advert for it that appealed to their peers.

Teachers - you can use our free resources for your lessons all year-round.

National winner

Well done to Hannah, Millie and Lily from Newcastle High School for Girls on being crowned our national winner for 2023/24!

The year 8 trio created a working model of a vending machine to advertise the role of dramatherapist. The highly creative and innovative design dispensed key facts about the career, such as day-to-day tasks, skills and qualifications needed, in a way that would appeal to their friends.

You can watch a video of the entry on YouTube.

The judges said: "You showed great teamwork and a combination of different skill sets. It’s an incredible final project, just a phenomenal piece. It conveyed the role perfectly and you are worthy winners!"

Hannah, Millie and Lily scoop this year's top prize of a £50 Amazon voucher, goody bag, and a framed 'national winner' certificate each and a prize for their class. Their entry will also be displayed in public for their school's local community to see. Well done all!
