The North Yorkshire Sport annual School Games Competition has now closed for the 2018/2019 season, and we are pleased to announce we have an overall winner, as well as 7 age group winners!
The popular competition is held annually and is open to all North Yorkshire schools, encouraging all pupils to get creative, and come up with a new design for the bronze, silver and gold medals used for all the County Finals across all School Games Events.
The winning designs is expertly converted into high quality heavyweight metal medals given to over 2000 participants throughout the year, and pupils are encouraged to consider the values of the School Games, and are influenced by the 'place' of North Yorkshire when coming up with a design.
So without further ado, congratulations to the overall winner from Thirsk Community Primary, Jessica Bober aged 10 (design pictured)!
Development Manager and head judge Jody Ivel said, 'We had hundreds of entries for this year's competition, with a real variety of creative designs representing the ethos of the School Games. For the first time we also decided to award 'runners up' prizes to the winner of each age group, to acknowledge the fantastic designs from pupils aged 4 right up to 11. Jessica's design stood out from the rest, and we can't wait to show her the design brought to life as our special guest at next summer's School Games finals at Queen Margaret's School.'
