Third Former Maggie has been shortlisted for the international design competition ‘Fountain of Hygiene’.
Launched by Bompas and Parr and the London Design Museum, the ‘Fountain of Hygiene: Sanitiser Design Competition’ invited creatives, designers and makers across the globe to design inspired takes on the hand sanitiser pumps being widely used as a direct consequence of the coronavirus pandemic.
Maggie’s innovative ‘Coby the Crocodile’ design was selected for the competition by her Design & Technology teachers following a school competition to design a hand sanitiser pump. Maggie’s design is now one of just six entries shortlisted for the ‘Cadet Designers (Under 18) category.
The category winner will be decided by a public vote, so St Peter’s School are now encouraging as many people as possible to vote for Maggie’s design.
To vote, simply visit https://www.fountainofhygiene.com/cadet-designers-under18s and click the heart symbol on Maggie’s design before 12th May.
The winners for each category will be announced towards the end of May and the prototypes will be displayed as part of an exhibition at the London Design Museum when it reopens to the public.
Maggie says: 'I'm really excited that my design has been shortlisted. It is great to see it on a website among other amazing designs'.
Maggie’s Design and Technology teacher, Mr Jon Whitehouse, says: ‘There are some incredible ideas in this shortlist, and Maggie’s design is no exception, taking a very functional product and giving it an aesthetic lift.’
Mr Jeremy Walker, Head Master at St Peter's School, says: ‘Congratulations to Maggie on this wonderful accolade! Her creativity and design skills are excellent and to be one of six finalists internationally at the age of 14 is a great achievement. I would encourage everyone to vote for Maggie and look forward to seeing where her abilities may take her in the future’.
