THREE delighted pupils were all smiles when they received their prizes, after winning the Evening Mail’s Design An Easter Egg competition.
Jasmine Humphrey, nine, Isabelle Helme, eight, and Evie Jackson, five, were swamped with Easter eggs when they paid a visit to Tesco Extra in Hindpool Road, Barrow, to collect their winnings.
Jasmine, a pupil at Yarlside Primary School, was named the competition’s overall champion – an incredible feat considering there were more than 900 entries. Her design, featuring a pink, green and yellow gift-wrapped egg, wowed the judges.
The trio of winners won across three age categories.
The Evening Mail’s competition, in association with Tesco, saw pupils grab their crayons and felt tips and draw bright Easter egg designs. A pull-out featuring all the creative entries was published in the Evening Mail last month.
Jasmine won a selection of Easter goodies and a seven-inch tablet. Her school also won two tablets and her classmates each received an Easter egg.
Janine Pierce, headteacher of Yarlside Primary School, said: “We were thrilled that Jasmine won the competition, especially when we saw how many entries there had been.
“I think her classmates were especially pleased once they found out she had won an Easter egg for them each!
“Jasmine always puts time and effort into everything she produces so this is lovely for her to be rewarded by winning the competition.
“The tablets are going to be put to good use within the classroom. We have recently invested in tablet technology so these will enhance our current provision which is wonderful.”
Category winners Evie, from Croftlands School in Ulverston and Isabelle, from Chetwynde School in Barrow, each received a bundle of Easter egg goodies.
