Design a Compass character competition – Winner Announcement

Thank you to all of you who entered our ‘Design a Compass character’ competition.

We received a huge amount of entries but we are excited to announce the winner is…

A pencil drawing featuring a young black girl with pig tails that have a range of colourful hair bands in them.  She is wearing a red zip-up hoody, denim skirt with two pockets with multicoloured starts on them and red and yellow striped tights.

Elizabeth Monu, 10 from Explore at Home Maple! 


Elizabeth’s character, Isioma loves to dance and dreams of becoming a choreographer.

 Not only will Elizabeth have her design created into a real Compass character, they will also receive a super art bundle. Elizabeth’s character, Isioma, will be joining Kai, Zola and the rest of the Compass gang in November.

We will be releasing a sneak peak of Isioma soon so keep your eyes peeled.

What our judges had to say:

 “ I love the jazzy tights! I think Isioma will bring a lot of joy to everyone who chooses them as their fearless friend. It's lovely to hear that Isioma is so passionate about dancing. I'm Isioma will make a fantastic choreographer one day!”

- Lewis, Compass Manager

 “With over 300 entries picking a winner was a tough decision but ultimately we thought Elizabeth’s character ‘Isioma’ was the best fit to join the Compass gang! We loved the character bio Elizabeth wrote and are very excited to represent all the dancers in our membership through this new character addition.”
