Take part in Code Club’s Easter competition!

The Easter holidays are here and to celebrate we are giving away some goodies to our Code Clubs! Our easter eggs have hatched and chicks are on the loose, hiding around our website for you to find!

chicks hatched

Every day we’ll be posting a clue on Twitter and Facebook, which may help lead you to the hidden chick on codeclub.org.uk. When you’ve discovered the location of the hidden chick, reply to the post with a link or description of the page where you spotted it to be in for a chance to win!

Each day, we’ll pick a winner at random from those who correctly identify the location of the hidden chick! The winners will get a goody bag full of posters and stickers for their club.

We’ll be using #CodeClubEaster in each tweet, so good luck, and happy hunting!

12 Days of Code Club

Partridges in pear trees are very nice, but we think that winning Code Club badges and stickers for your club is even better!

Welcome to the Twelve Days of Code Club: from 13 December to 24 December, we’ll be giving you the chance to win some lovely prizes for your club. The prizes will be different each day, but could include badges, stickers, posters and some other surprises too!

12-days

To be in for a chance to win, all you need to do is keep an eye on the @CodeClub Twitter feed. Each day we will be tweeting details of how to enter and win.*

This is our way of spreading some Christmas cheer and saying thank you to all our fabulous club hosts and volunteers for running fantastic Code Clubs this year.

See you @CodeClub for a chance to grab some swag!

*In order to be in with a chance of winning, you must be following the Code Club Twitter account, so that if you are selected, we can DM you for your address! All swag will be posted by our Christmas elves in the new year.
