A Welshpool High School pupil from Guilsfield has received a family ticket to Wales’ premier agricultural show after winning a poster competition.

More than 350 Year nine pupils and under across Powys and Ceredigion Year Seven entered a competition to design a marketing poster for the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, and it was Evan Pringle’s design that caught the eye of the judges.

The competition was run by the Positive Pathways Powys partnership, which also organisers the Powys Careers Festival.

The brief was to design a poster to attract people to attend from the Royal Welsh Show’s non-traditional audience. For example, how the Royal Welsh Show can attract people from urban communities to educate them around where their food comes from and the value of farmers.

Lily Rogers from Forden Church in Wales School and Delilah Leach from Welshpool High School received Highly Commended certificates for their entries.

Jackie Parker, Chair of Positive Pathways Powys, said: “I would like to congratulate Evan for winning this competition with a fantastic poster. This was a popular competition and I would like to thank all those who took part, everyone should be proud of their efforts.”

The prizes were presented by Steve Hughson, Chief Executive of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, who was also part of the competition’s judging panel.
