We asked Fellow 5 year olds:

How can we make the earth a better place?

Spell-binding creations of all kinds poured in. Everyone who shared a creation will win a special Octo-prize, but ten lucky kids will win a Tesla Model S for Kids and a year's free energy.

An esteemed panel of Octo-judges will pick two winners, but we asked for your help to choose the other eight...

FAQs

How were winners selected?

The popular vote was based on the most likes formally registered on our YouTube channel as of 20:00 BST on 25th of June, recorded and validated by our analytics team and with engagement from Google.

Two other kids were selected by a small panel of Octo-judges who chose their winners based on the originality of the idea and video.

How many kids will win prizes?

Every kid who entered a video wins a special prize: a goodie bag, a brand new fluffy octopus, and a book on sustainable energy. 10 kids will also win a mini-Tesla and a year's free energy!

Originally, we promised our clever competitors 5 prize winners – 3 chosen by popular vote, 2 selected by our expert OctoPanel. Due to a birthday wobbly on our part, some kids' videos didn't get uploaded in time for the voting to start. We didn't want to take votes away from the kids who started on time, and we didn't want to disadvantage the late starters either. So, part way through the competition, we decided to add 5 MORE popular vote prizes, just for the kids whose videos got uploaded late (any time after June 10th). So in total, there will be 10 kids to win a mini-Tesla and a year's free energy: 8 chosen by the public, and 2 selected by our esteemed OctoPanel.

When will the prizes arrive?

We're working hard to craft your mystery goodie bags so we can get them on the road to you as soon as possible (within the next month). Our books and cuddly Octopuses are ultra-special first editions, and still in production – never been seen by human eyes before! – meaning they might take a little longer. We estimate that you'll receive them late Summer 2021.

The year's free energy will be estimated and added to the winners' Octopus accounts as credits by July 1st. The mini-Teslas are very special: currently not available to buy here in the UK! We're working some octopus magic to get them over here ASAP, and we'll let you know when they're ready for delivery. We estimate that you'll receive them late Summer 2021.

Are you going to keep my video online forever and ever?

Yes! We loved the submissions so much that we can't bear to part with them. We however do have a few new videos coming soon to our YouTube channel so we're going to set all 5th Birthday Videos as unlisted, which means you can go in and view them whenever you want if you have the link to your video. So copy, paste and keep it in a safe place.
