Can you do better? Primary school pupils are invited to enter the ”Thank You NHS” poster competition

Dudley South MP Mike Wood, has teamed up with the Stourbridge and Dudley News to encourage local primary and special school pupils to demonstrate their artistic talent to thank our National Health Service heroes.

Together, they have launched a competition for local school children to use their creativity to design a poster thanking NHS workers for their brilliant work throughout the coronavirus crisis.  

Mike said: “For ten-weeks we stood on our doorsteps, clapped and expressed our thanks to the wonderful staff of our NHS. I thought it would be fitting to continue this further by asking local children to design a poster from which a winner can be picked and proudly displayed in our local GP surgeries, hospitals, shops and homes.” 

“Three years ago, the fantastic staff of our NHS saved my life – so I have seen first-hand what miracles they perform every day – but their work is even more remarkable during a health crisis like this outbreak.

“And it’s not just doctors and nurses – its the cleaners, cooks, porters and all the other staff who make the work of our NHS possible.

“I know how much talent their is in our schools, and look forward to seeing pupils' designs to express the thanks of our community for all those who work within our NHS.” 

The deadline for entries is Friday 26th June. Mike is asking that entries are sent to him by either email or by post. 

Email to: mike.wood.mp@parliament.uk
Or, post to: 111a High Street, Wordsley, DY8 5QR 

The best posters will then be shortlisted, and the public will be asked to help pick a winner. 

The winning poster will then be printed in the Stourbridge and Dudley News, which people will then be invited to cut out and display in GP surgeries, shops and home windows.
