Help Shaun the Sheep and Lu-La in our global competition!

Exciting news: Code Club and Aardman Animations are collaborating to bring you our global ‘Shaun the Sheep: Mission to Space’ Competition for all registered Code Clubs worldwide!

The mission

Our friends Shaun the Sheep and Lu-La have been on an adventure in A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, and they now need your Code Club’s help to get Lu-La back home. 

We’re asking young people in registered Code Clubs across the world to create awe-inspiring animations featuring Shaun and Lu-La’s adventures by following our specially themed ‘Shaun the Sheep: Mission to Space’ Scratch project.

The prize

The 10 creators of the best projects from around the world will win a selection of amazing prizes:

  • Their project displayed on the website
  • Exclusive Shaun the Sheep and Code Club swag for their club
  • A congratulations video from the Director of the new Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon
  • And more! 

What our judges are looking for

When Code Club members are creating their ‘Shaun the Sheep: Mission to Space’ animations, they should think about: 

  • Telling a story in their animation 
  • Showcasing their coding skills
  • Being super creative 
  • Making sure they follow the project instructions

How to enter 

The competition is open to registered Code Clubs from across the world, and young people can work individually on their Scratch animations, or in groups of up to three. 

Entries will be judged in two age categories: age 11 and under, and age 12 and above. 

The competition project is available for you to complete in eight different languages: English, Chinese, Croatian, French, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese and Ukrainian.

Submissions close on Friday 25 October.

If your Code Club is in the UK, the USA, or the Republic of Ireland, head to your Code Club dashboard to see all the competition details. If your Code Club is in the rest of the world, check your inbox: there is an email waiting for you with the full details and instructions of the competition.
