What is there for younger entrants?

What Prizes and Prize Money can be won?
There are four special trophies awarded in this division. Have a look at the trophy pages for more details.
Prize Money is the same as the adult classes:
1st place = £3
2nd place = £2
3rd place = £1
And don't forget, entry is FREE !!
This year there is a special £25 prize to accompany the new Johnny Ball Cup “For Most Points Awarded” in the Childrens category. That means the more classes you enter and come either 1st, 2nd , 3rd or Highly Commended, the greater the chance you have to win. Remember its total points, not necessarily 1st place wins.
What about different ages?
Classes 78, 79, 81, 82, 84, 85 may be split into 3 age brackets - Under 5’s, 5-10 years and 11-16 years. Take a look at the class list to see which ones these are.
