The company’s creative Paint Sticks brand is up for two gongs in the Education Resources Awards 2017

Little Brian has started 2017 in style after being shortlisted for two prestigious awards.

The company’s Paint Sticks product has made the shortlist in two categories at the highly-coveted Education Resources Awards (ERA) 2017, which will be held on Friday, 17 March, at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham.

Little Brian will now battle it out against several other brands to try and scoop the Special Education Resource or Equipment award and the Early Years Resource or Equipment award.

Little Brian’s delighted sales director, Lara Alcock, said: “What a way to kick off 2017 and be shortlisted in not one but two categories.

“Being announced as finalists in Educational categories just shows how flexible Paint Sticks are, they are suited to everybody! Paint Sticks are perfectly sized for the hands of children and they not only help to develop the creativity of children, but also help to improve children’s motor-skills and co-ordination, vital during the early years of teaching.

“We really are over the moon with this nomination, we are delighted with the impact the brand made in its first year and we’ve certainly started 2017 on a high!”

Paint Sticks provide a clean and convenient way to paint with no need for water or the mess that comes with it. The solid paint sticks twist up and down, like a glue stick, and allow vivid colours to be transferred directly onto surfaces like canvas, wood, paper, card and even glass drying within minutes of use.

Lara added: “We’re determined to keep going from strength-to-strength, Paint Sticks have been extremely well received and I think the award nominations and wins are showing that.

“We won’t take a step back, we’re always looking to improve as we to strive for Paint Sticks to be the go to art resource”

Now in its 18th year, the ERAs highlight and reward the quality and diversity of educational products, resources, services and people as well as the best educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession.
