To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, pupils at Olney College were tasked with taking part in a crown decorating competition.
Taylor Wimpey South Midlands challenged pupils from Olney Middle School to get creative and decorate wooden wreaths, which are now on display at the nearby Yardley Manor development.
A large number of students participated in the contest, sharing their beautiful creations for judging.
Entrants’ designs featured the Union Jack, Queen’s Corgis and lots of color, with Taylor Wimpey’s team being spoiled for choice when it came to picking the winner of the competition.
In the end, 5th grade student Evie wowed the judges with her design for the crown of one of the Queen’s corgis and was declared the winner. She will receive a £50 Waterstone voucher for her outstanding design.
Second place went to Bohaslava and third to Flynn, for their outstanding designs.
Commenting on the competition, Sarah Lowe, from Olney Middle School, said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a historic milestone and we were delighted when Taylor Wimpey offered us a chance to take part in this competition. The kids had an amazing time decorating their wreaths and we look forward to seeing them all on display at the local sales office soon.
Fiona Lloyd, Director of Sales and Marketing at Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, said: “We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the students at Olney Middle School who got involved in our wreath design competition to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen. We enjoyed seeing how creative the kids got with their crown designs and can’t wait to see the winning design along with the rest of the crowns on display soon for the whole community to enjoy.
