The winner, Kornelia Duda, a year 6 pupil at St Richard’s VC Academy, was surprised by her success:
Kornelia, aged 10, said: “I was really excited about winning; I just didn't expect it!
"The inspiration for my card came from my grandma because she's a nurse – like Florence Nightingale – and she loves Christmas!”
Natasha Barley, Director at Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University, said:
“Our charity, Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University, inspires children to find their talents and pursue a career using them. I have no doubt that Kornelia will be doing something creative in the future.”
Emma Cook, Acting Head at St Richard’s VC Academy, said:
“We value working in partnership with the Children's University and we are absolutely thrilled that one of our pupils was this year's winner.
“We were amazed at the quality of work produced this year at St Richard's Academy and any of our finalists would have been worthy winners. Kornelia's creative flair shines through; we are immensely proud of her achievement especially during this challenging year.”
Congratulations to Amelia Watson, aged 9, Year 5, St James Church of England Primary School, who was the runner-up in the competition.
