Original Writing and Illustration Awards

Our Original Writing and Illustration Awards celebrate the creativity of both Huish students and Year 9-11 pupils from the local area. Each year, students are invited to explore a set theme to create either an original piece of writing or poster design.

This year (Autumn 2020) the chosen theme was ‘Lockdown‘.

The awards are made up of four competitions; The Brunner Cup (Years 9-11), The Ross Paterson Award (Huish) and the two Lucas Cups (Huish and Year 9-11).

Please join us here on Wednesday 25th November at 7pm where the winners will be revealed in our virtual ceremony films.

Good luck to all our participants!
