Winners from Nantwich Primary Schools Gather for Rotary Art & Handwriting Competition Award-Giving

Edward Timpson  Presents Prizes to Winners

  On Saturday May 13th Edward Timpson, Minister for Children and Families, presented prizes at the Nantwich Museum to winners and runners up of the 9th Rotary Club of Nantwich Primary Schools Art and Handwriting Competition.  The increasingly popular competition smashed all previous records:  a new record of 985 entries; the first time that 13 out of the 14 local primary schools submitted entries and a record prize money of £850.

The theme for the competition was “The Great British Countryside”, which was interpreted in many different and creative ways by the children. The Judges for the competition - local artist and architect Martin Greenwood; Brine Leas School art teacher, Claire Somerville and calligrapher Frances Passmore. had the challenge of choosing the winners. 

Teachers, friends and family members of the children waited with eager anticipation to hear what they had won as they knew only that they were winners.  The gifted winners were awarded their prizes as follows:

Gold Medal Winners (£50 gift voucher plus gold medal each):

    • Key Stage 1 Art: Erin Ellis, Pear Tree
    • Key Stage 2 Art: Joe Jones, Audlem
    • Key Stage 1 Handwriting:  Olivia Cargill, Stapeley Broad Lane
    • Key Stage 2 Handwriting:  Amy Boulton, Pear Tree

The school judged to have the highest overall standard of entries in both art and handwriting, Pear Tree Primary was thrilled to receive a handsome trophy and a cheque for £250 which is to be used to further enhance the school’s facilities. 



In addition, sixteen Silver Medal prizes of £25 in the form of gift vouchers plus a medal were awarded to the children judged to be runners up for artwork and handwriting in each Key Stage grou


Said President-elect Tony Hoy: “This year’s Rotary Club of Nantwich Primary Schools’ Art and Handwriting Competition is the biggest and best yet.  With a record number of entries (985) and a record amount of prize money (£850), our Rotary club continues to increase their promotion of artistic excellence in local school children.  Many congratulations to all our wonderful winners and our sincere thanks to our generous sponsors - the William Hodgkin Trust, Morrisons (Nantwich) and Nantwich Hearing Centr


The children’s work will be on display in the Museum until 26th May.
