Doodle School Competition: Celebrate 120 years of Noris in the classroom

We've got some great prizes up for grabs — all in celebration of 120 years of Noris!

What would you say if we told you there was something in your classroom that was 120 years old? 

Nope — we’re not talking about the projector… we’re talking about the Noris pencil!

This September marks a dozen decades of Noris and to celebrate his 120th year, we’re inviting UK-based teachers to enter their class into our latest Doodle School competition: Design a birthday card for Noris.

With some pretty cool prizes up for grabs, the competition invites pupils to design a birthday card for STAEDTLER’s very special, black and yellow striped pencil during the month of September.
