It is difficult to tell from the picture below who was the most excited.  Rotary Vice President Gareth Owen was certainly delighted to be presenting the winner of the Young Writer prize from Ysgol Gwynedd.

But all the congratulations go to Fearne Conway who submitted an outstanding piece of writing on the ‘CONNECTIONS’ theme, on aspects of her family.  The judges thought this was a brilliant piece of thinking and imagination, and captured the theme perfectly.

Fearne’s Mum was discretely watching from a distance, and was equally delighted when the envelope was opened and revealed the winner.

Judges were very complimentary about the high standard of entries from the school, who have promised to submit even greater numbers next year.  Rotary thanks go to teacher Mrs Sarah Washington, who has supported the school students in the competition.
