The Results Are In

We’re delighted, once again, to announce the winners of this year’s My EPIC Era competition.  Our judges have had great fun pouring through all the drawings, models, writings, videos and songs etc. from schools across the country.  The standard once again has been EPIC; it has been fantastic to see the creativity and enthusiasm of pupils demonstrating their fascination for history.


The winner of the 1stprize is:
Luca Giorgio Marotta of Donhead Preparatory, London with his entry Stepping Stones Magazine for Kids.  The entry was a clear favourite amongst all our judges; one commented “Excellent layout, organisation and presentation. A variety of facts, song, quiz and interview. The puzzle page was great fun too!.”  Luca and his classmates will now have the chance to work with our professional team to write, direct and star in their very own 60 second history film which will be published on our website for everyone to enjoy.


The winner of the 2nd prize is:
Newport Girl’s High School, Shropshire with their entry about life in Nazi Germany.  “Wow! An amazing effort. Very detailed and thorough overview looking at different groups of people, key dates and figures. Excellent organisation and presentation.commented our judge, Kate Jones.  Newport Girl’s High have won themselves a brilliant half-day history workshop from our very own Kevin Hicks and the History Squad.


Our three runners up are:

·       King Edward VI High School for Girls with their entry A Message that Kills; a slave’s story

·       Bishops Itchington Primary School with a super local history piece; A History of Bishops Itchington

·       Donhead Preparatory - Boy In A Cotton Factory

All of our runners up will receive an EPIC history goodie bag.


Congratulations to all our winners.  You can view the winning entries as well as many more on our gallery at
