Queensgate is offering Peterborough schools the chance to win £500 worth of school supplies for their class and themselves by entering Dino-Gate’s ‘design a dino-footprint’ competition.

Pupils are invited to enter in classes to create a dinosaur footprint from any material and any size and bring it to the centre before Friday July 14 for a chance to win.

A prehistoric panel of judges (Queensgate management) will pick their favourite design from all the entries and announce the winner on Wednesday 19 July.
