Royal Mail Art Competition
A Year 7 pupil has made it the regional finals of an art competition inspired by the vital role played by key workers.
Millie W entered the Royal Mail 'heroes stamp design' challenge, which attracted 6,600 entries.She was aged 10 at the time she submitted her entry and has since moved on from St Luke's CE Academy to Endon High School. Now if her entry goes on to win the overall prize, her design will be turned into a real stamp.
Millie, who lives in Endon, said: "I’m really excited and so pleased to have made it to this stage."
She drew a supermarket worker, wearing a mask, surrounded by things that people struggled to buy in the pandemic, including toilet roll, soap, and flour.Millie has so far reached the regional finals and won £100 for herself and £100 for St Luke's. If she progresses to the next stage, she will bag £500. The final prize is £100 and the chance for the design to immortalised on a stamp.
