Winning Moves UK, owner and producer of the world Top Trumps brand, gave young people across the UK a blank canvas to design a pack of cards based on the theme ‘Our Amazing World’.
The best 12 entries – including 11 year old Tom Gymer (pictured) from Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire – have been given the chance to be crowned Britain’s Top Trumps champion at the Grand Finals, which take place this weekend.
The overwhelming theme of the packs designed by children were green issues, the environment and how to save the planet. Top Trumps marketing executive Katie Lee said: “We chose the theme ‘Our Amazing World’ because of the current issues taking place in the world around us. We wanted to raise awareness of how special all aspects of our planet are.”
She added: “We were very pleasantly overwhelmed by the entries we received – the students focused on topics from global warming to world food production. It’s clear they care more about the world than even their beloved phones, which these days you can’t prise from their grasp.”
The final takes place this weekend on Saturday 29th June at Sherwood Forest in Nottingham. Sally Granger, Sherwood Forest visitor experience manager, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be hosting the UK Top Trumps – the theme of ‘Our Amazing World’ is extremely close to our hearts. It’s wonderful that Britain’s children are so outward-looking in their vision.”
