Wrington Primary School student Esmée Cornock, aged 10, has won a national poetry competition.

Esmée won in the seven to 11 category of the Divine Chocolate’s Annual Poetry Competition 2018.

People more than seven years of age could take part and were asked to write a poem about Fairtrade chocolate.

The competition is in association with Christian Aid.

Esmée won a variety of prizes, including book tokens, author Cas Lester’s publication Do You Speak Chocolate? and sweet treats from the chocolate company.

A spokesman for the school said: “We are thrilled for Esmée and hope this will encourage her in her writing in the future.

“We will be encouraging pupils to have a go at penning a winning entry next year.”

Esmee said she was very surprised and happy and shared the good news with her friends immediately.
