THE RESULTS! Olympic inspired Sports Day Stickers Competition
25 June 2012 12:05:09 BST
St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Worthing and Rudgwick Primary School are our winners!
To win each school had to enter 4 Olympics inspired sticker designs: 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and general participation. The complete set was judged for each age category, so the emphasis was on team effort as oppose to individual talent.
Congratulations to the budding artists at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Worthing who won the Reception and Key Stage 2 categories and the Year 1 and 2 classes at Rudgwick Primary School who are the talented winners of the Key Stage 1 category.
Check out the winning entries here:
The competition, run in conjunction with local disability awareness Charity, Enable Me, and media partner, The County Times, gave primary schools across Sussex the opportunity to design and win a set of winner stickers that could be used at their school’s sports day.
Entries were received from across Sussex from over 100 children representing Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 categories. Local wheelchair athlete and aspirant Paralympian, Seb Trezise, Sports Officer at Enable Me, the official judge for the competition selected two school’s entries as winners of the three categories.
Seb commented: “Judging the entries was extremely hard as it was obvious the enormous effort the children had put into their designs. The winning designs used colour and imaginative images to depict the Olympic theme, incorporating icons of the event such as the winner’s podium, the Olympic torch and the Union Jack displayed in creative ways. Well done to all the entries, they were a delight to see and proof of the talent in our schools today. I hope that through the competition the children have thought about what the Olympics and Paralympics represent and that they have been inspired to go for gold whatever their talent, passion or disability.“
Anna Hayward, Teacher from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Worthing said: “We are absolutely delighted to win, it’s fantastic news! The children put so much effort into their entries and it’s wonderful that they will be rewarded by seeing them printed onto stickers. I’ve no doubt that they will wear them with great pride!”
