A primary school pupil from Edinburgh celebrated being named as one of 11 winners in a UK-wide design competition at a special ceremony this week (Thursday 26 April 2018).
Sanjana from Colinton Primary School entered the WOW badge design competition from Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.
WOW is Living Streets’ year-round walk to school challenge which sees children who walk to school at least once a week rewarded with collectable badges each month.
This year’s WOW theme is ‘Walk the Americas’ and Sanjana’s badge was inspired by amphibians of Central America. Pupils in over 2,000 schools across Scotland, England and Wales who walked to school during February will be rewarded with Sanjana’s badge.
Strider, the Living Streets mascot joined the Reducer, Edinburgh’s local road safety mascot at a special assembly at Colinton Primary School to present Sanjana with her prize, which included a large scale version of her badge.
