A uniform competition for schools
To help mark 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale, we've launched a competition for schools to design a uniform for nurses and midwives of the future. The deadline for entries is Friday 27 March 2020.
The competition, launched in collaboration with the Florence Nightingale Museum, is open to children in years 3 to 7 at a school in Lambeth or Southwark.
The top three shortlisted entrants and their class will be invited to a special awards ceremony held at St Thomas’ Hospital at the end of April, where the winner will be announced.
The top three shortlisted designs will be selected by nurses and midwives at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and winner and runner up will be chosen by the Trust’s chief nurse Dame Eileen Sills and the director of the Florence Nightingale Museum, David Green.
The winning design will be modelled by a nurse or midwife during the award ceremony and will then be displayed at the Florence Nightingale Museum for a week. The winner and runner up will receive prizes for themselves and their school.
