Over the half term holidays at York Castle Museum, we ran a Jubilee Plate competition with children designing a plate fit for celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The prize for the winning plate in each age category is to be made into a real plate, with a copy for the winner and a copy to go on display in the museum.
To say we were inundated doesn’t quite cover the nearly 500 entries we had, all of which were an excellent standard, which made the judging even harder!
We have asked all the staff here to help us decide and we have nearly come up with three winners, although it’s been a very hard process, so we have decided to give out some runners up prizes too.
Watch this space for the winners being announced soon!
