Youngsters from West End Academy, Hemsworth, have bagged a great prize after winning a recycling contest.

The children designed a scarecrow (pictured) for the Wakefield Council-run competition ,made from waste products they found around school. Entries from schools across the district were displayed on Facebook and in the Ridings. The pupils won £250 in vouchers, which they will use for art resources and an end of year trip.
