BUDDING poets received awards from a television wildlife expert as part of the Walk on the Wild Side competition.
Serena Cowdy, who has appeared on Sky News, BBC 1’s Rip Off Britain and on educational videos, presented winning students with their prizes at the Harwich and Dovercourt High School .
Library systems manager Andrew Dace, who organised the competition, was delighted with how it turned out.
“There was a decent amount of poems entered and all of them were of a very high standard.
“Serena judged the poems and said she enjoyed reading them and found it really difficult to pick a winner.”
The winners were Jack Gooding in the Year Four to Six category who also won the overall first prize of a Kindle Fire table, Rosie Underhall in the Year Seven to Nine category and Romana Baker in the Year Ten to 13 competition who got a family ticket for Colchester Zoo as the overall runner-up. All three were given £20 worth of vouchers.
