Young people in East Cambridgeshire have the opportunity to design works of art to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The competition is organized by East Cambridgeshire District Council during the Easter holidays and is based on the theme ‘Plant a tree for the Jubilee’.
Three designs will be shortlisted by the Council and turned into artwork to help publicize the Jubilee celebrations in June.
Each winner will have their artwork pasted on the East Cambs street scene recycling trucks, shared on social media and made into posters. The best design will also be made into a special Platinum Jubilee Card which will be sent on behalf of the Council to Her Majesty The Queen.
In keeping with the ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’ theme, each winner will also receive £50 worth of National Garden gift vouchers.
The competition is one of many activities organized by the Council to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
On Tuesday March 29, four children from Borough Green Primary School helped Council Chairman Councilor Alan Sharp plant a native beech tree in Brinkley.
Councilor Julia Huffer, Chair of the Council’s Operational Services Committee, said, “This is a great opportunity for anyone under the age of 18 in the district to get involved in a very exciting project and I encourage anyone who are able to participate and submit their application.
“We can’t wait to see some of the creative ideas from young minds in the district.”
