Berol, which produces writing and colouring products, is running a competition for pupils to create a design that reflects their school's personality for the exterior of the minibus. The school with the best design will win the new vehicle boasting its unique artwork.
Schools can enter the 10-month competition as many times as they like.
Each month a panel of independent judges will choose its favourite entry.
The nine winning schools will be presented with pound;1,000 worth of Berol products and a place in the final, and the winning pupil will receive a pound;100 voucher.
The nine finalists will be placed on the Berol website and, in December, members of the public will be able to vote online for their favourite design.
