Design & Win


Calling all budding fashion designers – win a free leavers hoodie featuring your own design!

Recognition Express is excited to announce the launch of our brand-new competition – ‘Design a Leavers’ Hoodie’.

Open to students aged between 15-18 years old, one national winner will receive hoodies for their entire tutor group, printed with their winning design! There will also be three runners up who will also win a leaver’s hoodie printed with their unique design.

Essential streetwear apparel, hoodies are your go-to staple for cold winter days or those chilly summer evenings. They are one of the most popular items we supply schools with and we’d love to see if you have a new take on what a leavers’ hoodie could look like.

Why not use this design to inspire your school’s other leavers’ hoodies for this year?

Don’t delay, the deadline is: 30th April 2017
