There are two main categories for the Competition:

1) Outstanding Model Box

(Open to all UK & International students)

This will be awarded to the student's model box & concept whom the judges feel is the most creative and effective. This is not about creating the 'perfect' model box but we will consider the concept behind the model and how it works with play text or devised piece. 

Prize Awarded - £100 e-voucher for Hobbycraft
