In March's 'Built for Speed' issue, we asked you to draw a race between two or more animals. Thank you to everyone who sent us their entries. So many strong (and cheeky) animals racing to the finish line – on land, in the sky and in the sea.


Congratulations to our five winners!

Soumia, age 11, Huddersfield

The Fox and Snail Race



Ella, age 9, Inverness

Win the Race! 


Rebecca, age 8, Airdrie

I made this drawing of a race between a cheetah, a jackrabbit, an elephant and a snail. I hope you like it! 



Forrest, age 8, High Wycombe

Cheetah vs Ostrich vs Peregrine Falcon 


 Natalia, age 9, Cheltenham

 The Race in the Desert


More Amazing Entries From Our Readers! 

Alys, age 10, Swindon


Amber Lily, age 10, London

Competitiveness under the sea: Swordfish vs Whale


Annabel, age 10, Cucklington

Dragon vs Dove


Danielle, age 9, Sullivan

Penguin vs Sea Turtle


Joseph, age 9, Stockport

Eagle vs Monkey


Kristina, age 10, Edinburgh


Lea, age 9, London-Greenford

I drew a picture of a heron and spider-monkey having a race. I think the spider-monkey will win because the heron got his foot tangled in the vines.
