A day in my digital life competition: announcing your national winners!

We are delighted to announce the national winners of the Find Your Balance: A day in my digital life art competition, in partnership with Google. 

The competition challenged children to draw a picture showing how they find a healthy balance in their online and offline lives. 

Our panel of judges were looking for something creative and individual: reflecting how children make the internet work for them and their families. 

The national winner in the age 5-7 category is Luxi, 7, from London who drew a stunning picture (below) showing a day in her digital life – all around the clock! 

 The national winner in the age 8-11 category winner is Aishwarya, 9, from London, who drew a fantastic picture (below) showing how her family’s digital lives connect – from ballet and music to work and exercise.

A special recognition award has also been given to Benjamin, 10, from Tiverton, who showed a day in his digital life with dyslexia (below) – and explained a really important message about how digital makes life more accessible.

Parent Zone founder and CEO Vicki Shotbolt, who was part of the national judging panel, said: “Huge congratulations to our national winners Luxi and Aishwarya, and to Benjamin for his special recognition award – as well as all the local winners and highly commended entries. 

“We were amazed by the many different ways children showed how they use digital – and the imagination they displayed to create their artwork.

“Our judging panel felt that Luxi, Aishwarya and Benjamin stood out for their colourful and creative entries – and how technology plays a supporting and often essential role in their family lives. But we’d like to say a big thank you to every child, parent and school who took the time to take part.” 

Our national winners have won a trip to the Houses of Parliament next year to see their artwork on display, alongside all of the other wonderful entries.

You can view all the local winners and highly commended entries in the online gallery – as well as seeing all the submissions from across the UK here.
