Competition gives your child the chance to win £400 for their favourite hobby

An exciting new competition has been launched by Kumon Educational UK and will run throughout the month of May. Children between the ages of 5 and 16 who wish to enter should visit the website at and write, in up to 100 words, what an education means to them.

One lucky winner from each of the three age categories; 5-8, 9-12 and 13-16, will win £400 which they can put towards helping them enjoy their favourite hobby.

Kumon offers maths and English study programmes for children of all ages and abilities. Through daily study, Kumon aims for each and every child to become an independent, advanced learner, with a positive attitude to study. In addition to developing academic ability, Kumon study fosters in students invaluable confidence and the mind-set and skills for self-learning, enabling them to realise their potential both at school and beyond.

Kumon hope the prize money will enable three lucky children to thrive in their chosen hobby and experience joy and success.

There are over 68,000 students experiencing success through the Kumon programmes across the UK, though this competition is open to all children. Families not yet enrolled on a Kumon programme can take advantage of a Free Assessment at their local centre.
