Winners and runners up all received certificates and gift vouchers, but this year we also have new trophies to celebrate the achievement in the three competions. These were presented to Sunninghill Preparatory School for Young Writer and Westfield Art College for Young Artist and Photographer by president Vanessa Lucas. 

Congratulations to all the entrants and winners for their excellent work, our club hopes to encourage as many schools and young people in the Dorchester area to participate next year, to recognise the amazing talents of young people in our community.
