SEAGULL COMPETITION 2014 – WINNERS ANNOUNCED
St Ives Town Council have been thrilled with the high calibre of creativeness and talent displayed by local school children taking part in this year’s seagull competition.
A competition that used to be held annually was brought back at the request of the St Ives youth Council, with the purpose of raising awareness that seagulls should not be fed, and to help warn unsuspecting people enjoying their food around the harbour and the beaches that seagulls will swoop to snatch food from their hands.
Over 70 posters were entered through local schools, St Ives Infants, St Ives Juniors, St Uny, Nancledra and St Erth. The winning design, junior section, was by Micho of Nancledra School. The winning design, infant section, Fletcher of St Uny School, Carbis Bay. The runners up were Emma from St Uny School and Victoria from St Erth School.
Those judging the competition spoke very highly of the range of ideas and the skill shown by so many young artists in the area.
Winning posters have been printed and will be displayed in shops, takeaways and cafes in the area. Winners received a £20 book token and a £20 donation for their school library. Runners up also received a book token, for the sum of £10, along with a donation of £10 to be used to buy books for the school library.
