Design a lorry competition

Thank you for your entries and look out for the announcement of the winners in the autumn term! 

To celebrate Tokyo 2020, Aldi and Team GB challenged young people aged 5–14 to get creative and design a lorry that celebrates everything great about fresh, healthy food. The two winners (one from England and Wales and one from Scotland) will see their designs on an Aldi lorry and could win £1,000 of Aldi vouchers for their school! The competition closed for entries on Friday 25 June 2021 and we have been overwhelmed by the number of brilliant lorry designed shared. The winners will be announced in the autumn term, so in the meantime, please download your Entry Certificate below as a thank you for taking part and continue to explore the Get Set to Eat Fresh resources!
