We're delighted to announce the winners of our Worcestershire Young Carers June Art Competition!

We were totally blown away by the incredible artworks we received and by the talent of so many of our young carers - as you can see from the pieces pictured, we had a really tough time picking three outright winners. So much so, that we decided to acknowledge others who we thought also created some fantastic pictures.

The winners are as follows:

1st prize: Jade

2nd prize: Mary-Jo

3rd prize: Bethany

Each of these winners will receive Amazon vouchers of £25, £15 and £10 respectively. 

Special commendations go to: Aimee, Ben, Demi and Rosie. 

Young carers were invited to submit artwork depicting either themselves or a member of their family - which could also include a family pet. Each month during the Coronavirus lockdown, the Worcestershire Young Carers team announces a different competition theme; the previous theme for May, was poetry. 

YSS Worcestershire Young Carers supports more than 600 carers throughout the county; during the pandemic, this support has continued, with regular Facebook chats, online meet ups and phone and email support. The team have also held a Zoom quiz and are planning a Bingo night in July for young carers and their families.
