Cambridge University Press joins forces to get kids writing Cambridge University Press (the Press) has joined the Post Office, Greeting Card Association, National Handwriting Association and the Writing Instruments Association as an Official Partner of next April's National Stationery Week and Get Britain Writing campaign.
The Press publishes the UK's leading schools handwriting scheme “Penpals for Handwriting”, a series of books and CD-ROMs for children aged 3 to 11.
The Press is also running the National Schools Handwriting Competition in conjunction with SATIPS. The competition is open to schools throughout the UK and internationally, and is open until 13th March 2015. The results will be announced during National Stationery Week (27th April – 3rd May).
Emma McCrea, Senior Marketing Executive at Cambridge University Press said, “We are delighted to be working with National Stationery Week. As publishers of the UK's favourite handwriting programme, we are passionate about encouraging people, and children in particular, to put pen to paper National Stationery Week celebrates the written word and all things stationery, and is organised by the London Stationery Show.
This year's event reached over 20 million consumers with the message that writing by hand is important and has a vital part to play in personal communications, even in a digital world. The week is sponsored by Dodo Pad, Kokuyo, Maped Helix, Nu: Notebooks, Sheaffer, and Zebra Pen.
The partners' role is integral to the success of the campaign, as it is their own studies, involvement in education policy making and role in the community which supports the main themes and initiatives with the overarching message that “Writing Matters”.
National Stationery Week organiser Chris Leonard-Morgan added: “We're delighted to have such great partners lined up for the campaigns and are very excited for the event in 2015. The partners all share the same objective of getting Britain – including kids – writing, and to have them on board is incredibly motivating and good for both the Get Britain Writing and Get Kids Writing campaigns”
