Dorchester schoolgirl Mia wins Little Monsters contest
2:00pm Wednesday 2nd April 2014 in News
A YOUNG litter campaigner who won a poster competition for Dorchester children has seen her creation come to life.
Prince of Wales School pupil Mia Briant was one of the winners of the Little Monsters Competition run by the Dorchester Stop the Drop anti litter group and Communities Living Sustainably in Dorchester.
The eight-year-old’s entry was the top entry from dozens of submissions as youngsters were tasked with designing their own anti litter poster.
She was accompanied by Tear 4 teaching assistant Barbara Thomas as she went to Epic Print in Dorchester to see her poster printed.
She also met with Alison Jay of Communities Living Sustainably in Dorset and Stop the Drop’s Felicity McLaren.
Mia helped pre-print operator Karl Watson get her poster ready for printing before meeting production manager John Formon and digital machine operator Dave Lovell as they recreated 100 copies of the poster.
Second and third place winners Mathilde Burdett, five, and nine-year-old Freya Humphries, nine, from St Mary’s School in Charminster also got the opportunity to visit Epic Print and experience the process.
