Thank you to everyone who took part this week - what a lovely outpouring of affection and gratitude for the NHS!
Our Primary winner is caring_crab of St. Luke's Primary School. They explained what they would say and why with great depth, and outlined the various reasons why the NHS is so important to us. Well done!
Our Secondary winner is fascinating_spring of Ormiston Bushfield Academy. They gave spirited praise to the NHS and their entry was a great example of speaking up for what they believe. Well done!
Look out for a new competition to be added shortly!

One of the big challenges is looking after the people who look after us. There's lots of them - doctors, nurses, dentists, and more. Keeping us well is really important, and it's hard work!
Artist Andy Leek wanted to do something special to recognise the work of NHS staff, and so he started a poster project called Notes to the NHS. Andy asked people to make posters with positive and motivational messages to the people who look after us when we need it. Watch the fantastic video below!
This week's competition asks: If you could make a poster like this, what would you write and why?
Your poster might...
- express your thanks for NHS staff
- be motivational
- tell them how much they matter
It must be a short, positive message that is that is about them, not you. Please do not include any personal information about yourself.
Watch the video for examples. If you can't think of something to say, choose a poster from the video that you like and explain why that message is important.
The competition closes on 28 February at 10.30am. Stars will be awarded at the end of the week. Good luck.
On my poster for NHS staff, I would write... "insert message here" because...
