Sponsor the Future! #GetKidsIntoSurvey

There’s a global skills shortage in surveying so we’re running a long-term ‘Get Kids Into Survey’ campaign to enthuse children and teenagers about careers in surveying. But we can’t do it without the support of the surveying community, so we’re asking for your help!

Could you sponsor the production of one or more fabulous #GetKidsIntoSurvey posters, which get shipped to schools and youth groups all over the world? In return, you’ll get your business logo right onto the poster on a character’s jacket, a product or equipment. Look at Piggle Wiggle the dog, for example, wearing her TopoDOT hi-vis jacket!  

Below, you can find out about forthcoming poster editions, the distribution details for past posters, and what you get as part of your sponsorship package. Currently, 95% of the posters are being requested by survey firms, which is fantastic: these firms take the posters into local schools themselves, which builds relationships and saves on our admin and shipping costs.

Poster production schedule

We produce SIX fabulous posters a year: one per quarter, plus two special editions, each with a print run of up to 3,000 (depending on exhibitions, demand, etc). The NSPS will print in the USA and we’ll print for ROW, and we’ll ship to anywhere in the world. Any second print runs will be included in your sponsorship deal – there’s no extra charge!

We’d love to have a conversation with you about sponsorship of any future edition – and you could even influence the content of our special editions. So please email us!
