In June, the Queen will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee – marking 70 years on the British throne – and Denbighshire Pupils will mark the occasional with a series of Platinum Jubilee Schools Competitions.

Denbighshire County Council’s Education and Children’s Services have worked with councillor Alan James, former Chairman of the Council, to devise a series of exciting competitions for schools.

There was something for all ages – flag designing, letter writing, sculpture building, biscuit decorating, even a royal bake-off.

We have some very talented children and young people in Denbighshire and their entries were all brilliant.

A lot of hard work, effort and creativity has gone into all the competitions and they have been really difficult to judge.

After receiving an amazing 2,407 entries over the 7 competitions and a lot of head scratching and deliberation, the winners are announced as follows.
