Students design a new school uniform with wool

Around Australia, school students are drawing up designs for a new uniform.

The Wool4Skool competition empowers those that wear the uniforms to explore new design opportunities with the renewable natural fibre.

The research, development and marketing body of the wool industry, Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has launched the competition as a fun way for students to reconnect with one of the country's iconic industries and win $1000 along the way.

Wool4Skool invites year 9-10 students to draw a summer, winter or sports uniform (male or female) using many of the innovations applied to modern wool. With lightweight breathable fabrics offering next-to-skin comfort, easy-care, odour resistant textiles and the new generation of Sportwool known as MerinoPerform there are endless possibilities.

These textiles are included in a free Woolmark Fabric Pack that has been produced with the support of the Australian Wool Education Trust. It is available to teachers to help budding designers select the most suitable fabric. Other resources include a design brief with technical imagery to help students.

Entries will be judged as part of the existing Australian Wool Fashion Awards and assessed on their original, creative and innovative design.

Correct entries must involve a school's current school uniform colours and incorporate the existing school logo. Students can design by themselves or in a group with a maximum of three students.

Design works must be submitted by the close of competition at 6pm AEST on Tuesday 29th March 2011. The winning student/s will receive a cash prize of $1000 for first place and $700 for second place.

AWI has partnered with the NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre to align the competition with the Years 9-10 Design and Textiles syllabuses across Australia.
