Talented Bute youngster Lewis Tweedlie has been chosen as the winner of this year’s Argyll and Bute Council road safety calendar competition.
Lewis, a P6 pupil at St Andrew’s Primary School in Rothesay, designed a brightly-coloured poster bearing the message ‘Be bright and you’ll be all right’, which was chosen as the overall contest winner from 1,254 entries submitted by 35 primary schools across Argyll and BUte.
Ten-year-old Lewis’s picture will now feature at the top of the 2014 calendar, being sent to every school and office in Argyll and Bute Council.
Argyll and Bute provost and Bute councillor Len Scoullar, who presented Lewis with his prize, said: “Road safety is an extremely serious subject which affects each and every one of us. This competition is a great way of getting young people to think about their behaviour on our roads.
“I’d like to congratulate all the category winners and entrants this year as the standard was particularly high.”
Lewis received a £50 Amazon voucher as his prize along with his winning picture in a frame, while an eye-catching trophy will go on display in the school.
It’s the fourth time the competition has been won by a pupil on Bute - St Andrew’s last won the contest in 2010, while Rothesay Primary took the accolade in 1999 and 2005.
