Following close competition with pupils from local primary schools Leo Mullins from Towcester C.E. Primary School was awarded first place in the local final of the Young Artist Competition. The theme for the competition was “Light up Your Community. His bright and colourful submission certainly met the criteria and showed great skill for his age.
Leo has been invited to submit his work to the 1070 Rotary District Final where he will be in competition with pupils from the schools of 5 different counties.
Having received a certificate and a small prize for his success in the local round there was a surprise bonus. Mike Novakovic owner of Watling Street Gallery arranged for the picture to be professionally framed. The photograph shows the finished article which looks ready for the gallery wall!

Many thanks from the Rotary Club of Towcester to all those who took part, to the judges and to Mike for his kind contribution of a frame.
