Alana Stuart, a year six pupil at Newland St John's Church of England Academy, was one of 150 pupils at her school to enter the competition.
Alana, aged 10, said:
“I really enjoyed coming up to the University to sketch some of the buildings. I chose the Venn building for my design because it is such an interesting older building. I feel proud and surprised to have won the competition, because I've never won anything before and I feel like a VIP!”
Natasha Barley, Director at Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University, said:
“We were thrilled when the Vice Chancellor of the University asked us to run a Christmas card competition to find a suitable design for her cards this year.
“We received over 500 designs so selecting a winner was a difficult task. The designs from Newland St. John’s school really stood out. They had taken the time to come on campus to study the buildings and do some in situ sketching. The result was amazing with the sketches being of an extremely high quality and very accurate.
“Our charity, Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University, inspires children to find their talents and pursue a career in them. I have no doubt that Alana will be doing something creative in the future.”
Alana will be presented with her prize at the University’s annual carol service on Sunday.
Sarah Wilson, Headteacher at Newland St John's Church of England Academy, said:
“We value our links with both the University of Hull and the Children's University highly, and very much enjoyed taking part in this project.
“It gave a fantastic context for the children to apply their developing art skills as well as giving them a glimpse of the university and something for them to work towards in the future. We are immensely proud of Alana and the work she produced!”
