City's young artists go wild.

COVENTRY kids have shown they are blooming marvellous in a city painting competition.

The painting competition, judged by the city management company, CV One, asked youngsters to create a picture on the theme of "wildflowers", to encourage them to think about their local environment and what makes it attractive.

The competition, organised by the Heart of England Tourist Board, will form part of Coventry's Britain in Bloom entry.

Coventry entered the Britain in Bloom competition for the first time last year and won silver.

The paintings were judged at a local level by CV One and English Landscapes.

All entries will now be put forward to the regional Britain in Bloom competition.

Four children won prizes in two age catergories.

First prize in the age four to seven category went to Kavita Patel, of Ravensdale School, Wyken, for her poppy picture and second prize went to Ellie Minett, of 56th Allesley Rainbows, for her sunflower painting.

In the age eight to eleven catergory first prize was awarded to Elena Joannides, of Earlsdon Avenue South, Earlsdon, for her wild Iris picture and second prize went to Natasha Handcock, of Sewall Highway, Bell Green, for her primrose painting.

First prize in each catergory was a pounds 25 book token.
