Young people have been presented with their awards for succeeding in this year’s Rotary Club of Dunmow’s Schools Competition.
As these are national competitions, winners were sent to the District (Essex) competition and those winners are sent to the national Rotary competition.
Brian Tranter said: “The Rotary Club of Dunmow holds several competitions for young people from five to 18 every year.
“Usually we hold a special awards evening in May, but due to Covid, this was postponed, and the awards are being presented in schools this year.
“The judges were impressed with the over all standard of the entries, and wish to thank all those taking part.”
At Great Dunmow Primary School, Lailah Albon won the overall Dunmow prize for Young Writer, and the Essex District prize, with her essay on The Unwanted Puppy, under the theme ‘Connections’.
Fellow pupil Harriet Stigwood won the overall Dunmow prize for her artwork on the theme ‘Through My Eyes’ in the Young Artist Competition.
