A creative nine-year-old from Woolpit Primary School has seen his winning litter awareness poster splashed across the side of a Mid Suffolk street cleaning truck.

Harry Sobkowiak’s poster design was picked out of more than 200 entries to win the district council’s Litter Awareness Poster Campaign competition last week.

Talented Harry was presented with a monkey litter bin for his school, a special certificate and got a chance to see his winning poster emblazoned on the side of the truck.

Councillor David Burn, Mid Suffolk’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, who judged the competition, said: “The standard of all the entries this year was so high that it really was difficult to pick an outright winner

“However, Harry’s entry, and the message it contained, did stand out.

“It was straight-to-the-point and his picture really captured the idea simply so that anyone looking at it would know that dropping litter is wrong.

“Well done Harry.

“Of course, we are now looking forward to next year’s competition so if any schools in the district aren’t involved and want to be - now is the time to contact us.”

Councillor Jane Storey, Ward Member for Woolpit, said: “It was a wonderful presentation and the children had worked so hard.”

Two other pupils were also given certificates for their highly commended work.
