Two students awarded prizes for St Albans Legacy Project competition
Posted on 22 October 2018
We are very proud that two students in year 9 have recently been awarded runners up in a local art competition.
St Albans Legacy Project launched the multi-media competition to mark the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. Secondary school students in the St Albans district were invited to submit an original entry that considered the bigger stories as WW1 came to an end.
The aim of the competition was to encourage students to deepen their understanding of the social and political landscape of the present day, by studying the impact of past events on their immediate community, as well as in the wider context of the world.
The competition was judged by historian and broadcaster Kate Williams.
Annabel Swan in Year 9 was the runner up in the written section for her piece ‘Tears’, while Emily Stevenson was runner up in the 2D section for her work ‘St Peters Street Ghost Trench’ (which you can see below).
As part of their prize, their work will be exhibited in the St Albans Museum and Gallery from 27 October to 15 November 2018. Visit their website for further information.
