A pen with spooky qualities that glows in the dark has been named the winner of a futuristic pen competition.

William Townsend’s special design scooped top prize in the competition’s under 6 age category and wins a family trip to Cadbury World, a Back to School bumper stationery pack and a certificate to proudly display on his bedroom wall.

The competition was organised by Mitsubishi Pencil Co., owners of the uni-ball brand, to celebrate its global 30th anniversary and to highlight the importance of good literacy skills.

A pupil at St. Benedict Biscop Primary School in Wombourne, William joined hundreds of other children from across the Midlands to ink their pen designs for the future. Other designs ranged from a dragon pen that scorches the paper as you write and a self destructing writer instrument that comes complete with a radio, MP3 player and memory stick.

Marketing Manager at Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Stuart Barker said: “Congratulations to William on winning the competition with this design. His entry clearly celebrated the art of handwriting by designing a pen that he would like to use in 30 years time.

“William’s handwriting also demonstrated exceptional clarity as we asked all pupils to describe, in no more than 100 words, their pen’s key features and benefits.”
