Kids Judge Bett

Kids Judge Bett

Pupils and parents from schools across the UK, the power is in your hands! SEND and FE students are invited to get involved exploring stands, exhibitors and their products to choose their favourites in ten hotly contested categories. 

Be a judge for the day!

Taking part is simple! Schools attending the show on Wednesday and Thursday can tweet their favourite stands via #KidsJudgeBett or contact Katy Potts on Twitter via @KatyPotts

Then, on Friday 31st March, a group of eight schools will visit the Bett show and make their final selections. The results are announced by the students in a high-energy finale live at Bett, where ten very honoured companies will receive the extremely sought-after and delicious chocolate trophies.

This student-led event, running throughout the week, is organised by Katy Potts, Islington Council in partnership with BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association).

Take part in the grand finale

If you want to get involved at the Friday finale the key requirements are:

  • Have an enthusiastic group of 8-10 pupils and staff free to take part on Friday 26th January at the ExCeL, London
  • You’re available to attend the show between 9.30am & 3.30pm
  • You can use your school Twitter account to tweet in the run up to event and on the day
  • Your students can prepare fun and simple #KidsJudgeBett posters to bring on the day
  • You and your students will be strictly unbiased. No accepting gifts from suppliers (no matter how tempting) 

If that all sounds good then tweet @KatyPotts to get involved!

  • "Winning an award is a wonderful feeling, but winning one that was judged by children was uplifting, and the most meaningful award we have ever received.  Who better to give us a seal of approval than the very people we created now press play for. Thank you Kids Judge Bett!"
