Stevenson Welcomes Gamrie Pupils to Scottish Parliament Awards

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed Alanah Ironside (9) and Lisa Baxter (10) to the Scottish Parliament to receive prizes from the SCARF calendar awards. The two pupils attend Bracoden Primary School in Gamrie and were amongst the thirteen winners from schools across the North East of Scotland.

The SCARF Calendar Awards saw around 4,000 entries this year from school pupils who designed calendar entries that will encourage people to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. The winning entries were voted for by North East MSPs at an event held earlier in the year.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I was delighted to meet Alanah and Lisa during their visit to the Scottish Parliament and to see them win the awards that their artwork so clearly deserves. They were both extremely impressive entries and worthy winners.

“I know that their parents and teachers will have been delighted at their success and it is extremely encouraging that pupils at Bracoden Primary School clearly care deeply about the environment.

“All of the winning entries quite clearly got to the heart of the kind of changes we need to make as a society if we are to combat climate change and the finished calendar is extremely impressive. I hope that Alanah and Lisa enjoyed their visit to Holyrood and that we will see a large number of entries from pupils in Banff & Buchan again next year.”
