Council Chairman, Councillor Mark Murnin, recently hosted a reception for primary and secondary school pupils from across the district to reveal the winning posters in this year’s competition. All schools in the district will receive a free supply of calendars to give out to school staff and families whose children attend the school.

Presenting the lucky winners with their prizes, Chairman Murnin said, “It never ceases to amaze me how talented the young people are in our district. Your artwork will be seen throughout this Council and beyond, when the calendar is produced in December.

“I know that the competition was fierce with hundreds of entries from the 65 schools throughout the district which took part and I want to give my congratulations to everyone who was selected to feature on the calendar.”

Three hundred pupils, whose posters were shortlisted but did not make the final calendar, will also receive Certificates of Achievement as part of the competition.

All winning pupils received a specially framed copy of their winning poster as part of their prize.
