Highland Pupils winning environment photographs displayed in Eastgate Centre (08/06/09)
Winners and finalists of The Highland Council’s 2009 ‘Highland Environment’ photograph competition will have their works displayed in a two-week exhibition at Eastgate Centre, Inverness from Monday 15 June, 2009.
Primary school category winner Marc Logie of Rosebank’s photograph of Glascarnoch Dam, Ullapool and High School winner Catherine Welsh from Millburn’s photograph of Dores Beach will be among those on display.
The aim of the competition was to get young people to identify why they love the Highland Environment and to show what they think makes the Highlands special enough to encourage others to save energy and look after our environment.
Finalists in the Primary School Category were: Alexander Lewthwaite from Crown Primary; Elizabeth Mills and Emma MacLeod from Portree Primary; Isabelle Law from Broadford Primary; and Josh Mahoney from Dornoch Primary. The Secondary School Category finalists were: Blair Cairns from Plockton High; Carol Salmon from Lochaber High; Paul Mossman and Sam Cairns from Kingussie High; and Katrina Port from Gairloch High.
In order to raise environmental awareness among Highland school children, the Council intends to make this an annual competition.
