Brent Council and recycling and waste firm Veolia have announced the winner of the #BinItForBrent poster competition.
Nine-year-old Aqsa's winning entry will be displayed across seven parks.
The #BinItForBrent competition asked school children to design a poster to discourage littering in parks and public spaces.
Aqsa was awarded the top prize for her creative masterpiece, which called on park users to protect the planet.
Lee Connelly, parks contract manager for Veolia Brent, said: “Our staff will continue to work hard during the lockdown to maintain the green spaces of Brent, which are so vital to our health and wellbeing. We hope everyone will take notice of Asqa’s brilliant poster telling us to use a bin or take your rubbish home."
