Bramcote Schools’ Art Competition – Results Now Published

Produce a picture that shows “What’s great about my School” was the challenge that Bramcote Today gave to pupils in all the Bramcote schools, up to and including year 7.

Six schools sent in their ten best entries and the winners from each school were selected at a special presentation at Bramcote Park Sports, Business and Enterprise School on Friday, 1 July. The judges, Anna Soubry, Broxtowe’s MP, Councillor Stan Heptinstall, and Abi Sambells, a former Bramcote pupil and current Loughborough art student, were most impressed with the standard of work and effort made in creating their artwork.

The judges considered the message that inspired the work as well as the artistic standard. Many of the themes were friendships made at school which the judges found commendable. One entry, from Wadsworth Fields, portrayed the link between their school and Upendo School in Kenya. Cllr Stan Heptinstall was particularly impressed with this message. Anna Soubry said it was extremely difficult to choose the winners because of the high standard of entries.

Organiser, Sue Sambells of the Bramcote Today Team, thanked the schools for their help and said “I felt quite amazed and emotional when I picked up all the entries from the six schools. The project to widen interest in Bramcote Today was finally coming to fruition after all these weeks”.

All the competition winners, those highly commended and indeed all the finalists received certificates from Bramcote Today.
