Poetry Competition Winners

Congratulations to Honor Sutton aged 9 and Rebecca Lockwood aged 16, our two category winners!

Honor's poem entitled 'Staffordshire, my favourite place to be' was chosen in the 7-11 year old category. She wins a class trip to Trentham Monkey Forest for Oakridge Primary and a £50 one4all gift card and family ticket to Monkey Forest for herself.

Rebecca's poem 'The Stag and I' impressed the judges in the 11-16 year old category and has earned her school Cannock Chase High a workskop with performance poet Giovanni Esposito (Spoz). Rebecca also gets a pair of Thrill Hopper passes so she and a friend can visit Alton Towers, Drayton Manor, SnowDome and Waterworld this summer.

Thanks to more than 380 young people across the county who entered the 'I Love Staffordshire' poetry competition, held in conjunction with Staffordshire Libraries.
