Pfizer UK announces ‘Superbugs: Join the Fight’ Competition winners

Pfizer UK is pleased to announce the winners of its ‘Superbugs: Join the Fight’ Schools Competition.


Following the launch of the ‘Superbugs: Join the fight’ school programme, students were invited to design a creative, sharable campaign idea which engaged their family, friends and community with the real-world issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and how they can help to reduce it.

Over 600 entries were submitted, leaving the expert panel of judges with the hard task of choosing just one winner and one runner-up for both Primary and Secondary school categories.

And the winners are…


Category: Primary School

Winner | Hannah (9) Trerobart Primary School
Hannah created a colourful alphabet of facts, advice and information about antimicrobial resistance.


Category: Primary School

Runner-up | Phoebe (10), Birkenhead High School Academy
Phoebe wrote a creative radio jingle; she mixed rap, singing and spoken word to spread the word about the Superbugs.

Category: Secondary School

Winners | Katy (13) and team, Prudhoe Community High School
Katy and team used their comic strip characters to tell the story of antibiotic resistance and the ways we can fight against it.


Category: Secondary School

Runner-up | Maya (11) Tring Park School
Maya's letter from the Superbugs to the humans of Earth explores the reality of a world without antibiotics.


Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up; each will be invited to a day at the Science Museum in London for their whole class, including a prize giving event.

And thank you to all the schools, teachers and students who registered for the 'Superbugs: Join the Fight' programme and submitted their creative and original campaign ideas.

The ‘Superbugs: Join the fight’ initiative has been developed to engage primary school pupils with the real-world issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and help to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance whilst addressing ways to tackle the inappropriate use and misuse of antibiotics.


As one of the largest providers of medicines that treat infections, we’re proud to be a key player in the fight against AMR. During World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) 2018, we highlighted some of the ways we're working with government, healthcare workers and other organisations to tackle the problem.
