Pupils from across Wales attended the Marriott Hotel, Cardiff for the annual Creative Competition Awards 2019.
This year’s competition attracted thousands of primary and secondary school pupils from across Wales.
The panel of judges had a difficult task deciding on the prize-winning entries, including the overall winner as they sifted through hundreds of entries during the judging day.
The award ceremony was hosted by TV presenter Alex Winters and was supported by players from the Swansea City Ladies, Cardiff Blues, Cardiff City, Newport County and the Cardiff Devils.
The ceremony kicked off with a fantastic and energetic dance performance from pupils of St Andrew’s Primary School from Newport.
Kirsty Williams AM, Minister for Education, supported the event and highlighted the Welsh Government’s commitment to challenging racism in Welsh schools.
Prize winners received a range of awards for their entries, including a Kindle Fire / Amazon voucher, a trophy and a framed certificate.
Categories ranged from clothing design and creative writing to digital media and poster design. This year’s special category saw pupils tasked with designing an anti racism advert.
The overall winner was Raeesa Miah from St. Helens Primary School in Swansea who also received an iPad donated by the National Education Union (NEU) who sponsor the competition. Thank you to Raeesa for reading your powerful poem during the ceremony.
