A YOUNG artist from Charlton-on-Otmoor Primary School will have his work seen by thousands of people after winning a competition to design a poster encouraging others to recycle.
Malachy McCormick, eight, was among 250 pupils from nine primary schools who took part in the competition organised by Cherwell District Council. He watched as a giant version of his poster was unveiled on the side of a recycling lorry outside his school on Monday.
Malachy said: “With my recycling poster I tried to make global warming look frightening to make people recycle.”
Headteacher Mike Wisbach said he was delighted Malachy’s design would be seen across the district. He added: “It is a feather in the children’s cap that someone here is a competition winner and it will encourage them in their efforts to recycle. We hope it will also encourage others.”
