    Our judges were really impressed with the quality of the artworks submitted to the Your Marks Gate competition by students at Rose Lane Primary School that they decided to award two 'Special Mention' awards.

    The first was awarded to Izma Ikram, aged 7 for her artwork 'Amazing Padnall Lake'. Izma created a detailed and colourful drawing of Padnall Lake, the local nature and homes that surround it. Well done Izma!

    The second award went to Sara Arbra Mezyraj, aged 10 for her artwork 'Earth Crying'. The judges were really impressed with her drawing with a wider message. Sara wanted to spread the message 'that we need to start treating the Earth right. I thought of this idea because of climate change and Covid-19. People are not caring for our planet, for example not taking care of mature or their own rubbish'. Well done Sara!
