Argentina have claimed the top spot in the DBA and Devonport Speculator RWC Window Display competition.

With 253 votes cast, the Argentinian display – created by Devonport Primary School and featured in the ASB Bank – led from the beginning of the competition to the end, comfortably pipping New Zealand who just squeezed out Wales. Teacher Abbey Lee McMahon said the kids at Devonport Primary were “thrilled.”

The New Zealand (House of Travel) and Wales (Echo Designer Outlet) displays were made by Belmont Intermediate and Belmont Primary respectively.

Each voter could select a gold, silver and bronze display, with each getting 3, 2 and 1 points respectively. The average for each team was then taken, and delivered the results below. Each voter could only participate in the survey once. A number of voters were disqualified as a result.

The results suggest a close run race; almost every team was nominated for at least one gold medal, and with very little difference between the teams outside the top four.

Well done to all the schools and classes that participated, and thanks to the teachers, Maire Vieth and Eddie at the DBA for coordinating the whole thing.

One last piece of good news; everyone who voted went into the draw for Devonport Chocs, except those who voted more than once or who didn’t supply their email address.

The prize is: a guided behind the scenes tour of The Vic, together with a private movie viewing

We’re also delighted to announce that the winner of the draw, selected by using a random number generator on the Web (, was ….

    What a six weeks and what a win… the all blacks have done us all proud – thanks guys. The window display was lovely to see and I was in Devonport most days watching all the school children tendering to their own displays. That is apart from Devonport Primary School’s Principle who decided not to allow DPS children to put up their own displays but excited school for an hour and put them up herself! Hang on… wasn’t this supposed to be about the children! Worse still the bank was dead and no one about it was appalling to see a school not doing what it was supposed to… teaching and educating and assisting children. Well done Maddie.
