From over 100,000 school children, 12 have battled their way through to The Grand Final of the National Schools Top Trumps Tournament, which takes place next weekend.
The final is being held on Saturday June 29th at the Winning Moves HQ in central London. The winner will receive a Top Trumps Tournament Trophy, as well as games goodies and an iPad Mini. In addition, all the finalists will receive an iPad Mini.
The dozen youngsters will be hoping to emulate the success of last year’s winner, Lloyd Home from Warrington, Cheshire.
For this year’s event, Top Trumps teamed with Rockpack, a new social video sharing network. A special Digital Heroes pack of Top Trumps was created and sent to schools up and down the UK.
The exclusive pack was designed to help teach children about the ‘heroes’ who have inspired and created the technologies they use every day – as well as highlighting digital ambassadors like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
The packs also carry messages to parents and children about staying safe online – as well as offering some key discussion points for the classroom about the potential of the digital world and the challenges that have been opened up as a result.
