A PUPIL from Cleckheaton has won a £500 prize for his school after winning a drawing competition organised by the town's Tesco store.
Students at a number of schools across the area were asked to come up with a picture to show what they love about Cleckheaton and the store was overwhelmed with colourful drawings.
But it was 10-year-old Samuel Young from Whitechapel Primary School that won over the store’s manager.
He used a day and night theme in his picture that showed the town hall and cars on the road outside.
The winning design has now been transferred onto thousands of Hessian bags, which are currently being given away to customers at the store on Northgate to thank them for their patience during the disruption caused by recent building work to give the store a make-over.
At a special assembly at the school, Samuel came face-to-face with his picture on the shopping bag and was delighted to have won. He was also presented with a £25 gift card to spend in the store. Meanwhile, headteacher, Michelle Bouabida, received £500 towards school funds.
Clare Findlay, store manager at Tesco Cleckheaton, said: “What a great, colourful, picture from Samuel. It looks fantastic on the bags and I know our customers are going to love them."
Headteacher, Michelle Bouabida, added: “The pupils were excited to take part in the competition and they put a lot of thought into what aspects of local life they wanted to draw.
“Samuel made a really good job of drawing the town hall and we’re all thrilled that one of our pupils was successful as I know the picture will bring a smile to customers at Tesco.”
