Winners announced of school poster competition
Two 10-year-olds from Glynne Primary in Kingswinford have been named as joint winners of a borough-wide poster competition for youngsters around Covid-19.
Dudley Council in partnership with Dudley Council for Voluntary Service (DCVS) invited all children in primary, special and secondary schools across the borough to design an A4 poster raising awareness of important messages about coronavirus.
Entries were judged by Dudley’s Young Health Champions and the winners were Isabelle and Emilia, both in year 5 at Glynne Primary.
The six runners-up were Dora, aged 10, also from Glynne Primary; Serenity, 14, Conner, 14 and Mehak, 13, all from The Link Academy in Netherton; Samuel, 10, of Priory Primary School; and finally Paris from Dudley Youth Council.
Winners will receive a £50 Amazon voucher, a certificate and £100 for their school. The runners-up will receive a £10 Amazon voucher and certificate.
The winning designs will be turned into posters and shared across all Dudley schools.
Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care, said:
It was great to see so many children get involved with this competition, and the standard of the winners and runners-up was really high.
With children now back at school, it is critical they understand what they need to do to help keep themselves, friends and family safe.
This poster campaign, with the winning designs going up in schools around the borough, will hopefully help with that.
I heartily congratulate all the winners.
