Creative pupils will have the chance to show how proud they are of the borough as part of a national design competition.

Schoolchildren in Brent are being invited to design their own postcards showing off landmarks and places of interest or beauty in their area as part of The Pride of Place Pupils’ Postcards competition.

The best entries will compete nationally to have their designs printed up as proper postcards which will be provided to the winning school.

With famous landmarks such as Wembley Stadium and the iconic Swaminarayan Temple in Neasden children are encouraged to get their art materials out and start drawing.

Launched by, the UK’s biggest provider of motivational products for school children, the contest is open to pupils from four to 16 years of age and will be split across three age categories.

He said: “This is a chance for Brent pupils to show off the best bits of their area. The design of the postcard is up to them, whether it’s a great drawing, collage or photo.

“And the landmarks they choose can be somewhere less-known nationally but important locally, perhaps a great building, amazing view or somewhere of historic interest. We are confident there will be a great response.”

The winners will be announced on the June 28, with their school receiving a year’s supply of praise postcards in their winning design

Entries must be received by midnight on June 14.
