Rotary Club of the Deepings showcases work of young artists
Young artists in the Deepings area have once again been wowing supermarket shoppers with their creative work.
The youngsters have been taking part in the annual Schools Art Competition run by the Rotary Club of the Deepings.
Entries were invited from primary schools in and around the Deepings area, with the competition divided into two sections – Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. All the submitted artwork was displayed at the Tesco store in Market Deeping.
The competition attracted a big entry of 113 pieces of work from nine different schools and a panel of three independent judges had the difficult task of selecting the winners in each section.
The results of the competition were:
Key Stage One: 1. Jasmine Sutton (Deeping St James Primary School); 2. Taiah Brown (Linchfield Community Primary School); 3. Archie Renault (Langtoft Primary School)
Key Stage Two: 1. Daniel Roberts (Northborough Primary School; 2. Amelia Rogers (John Clare School, Helpston); 3. Isobel Walker (Baston Primary School)
School prize: Market Deeping Community Primary School
A prize of £50 was awarded to each of the individual winners, with £25 going to the runners-up and £15 for the third placed entries.
The prizes were presented by Deputy Mayor of Market Deeping Councillor Xan Collins and Rotary Club President Jenny Spratt, with Tesco providing chocolate goodies for all the prizewinners.
Competition organiser John Lavery said: “It was another excellent year, with the standard of work as high as ever, which is a tribute to all the young artists and the schools.
“We have been grateful once again for the continued support of the local schools and, as always, indebted to Tesco and the staff at the store for their support over the years.”
