Children and teenagers can design posters to raise awareness of the issues with plastic and littering, and see their winning designs around the town. They can also win book vouchers for themselves and their school.

Mercury chief reporter Sarah Robinson inspired pupils at Hans Price Academy to enter the competition this week, as year seven and eight pupils will be learning about the advantages and disadvantages of plastic.

To submit an entry by 10am on July 13, send the poster, with the child’s name, age, school and contact details, to Weston, Worle and Somerset Mercury, 32 Waterloo Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1LW.
