Scotland's Urban Past Learning Officer Victoria Robb said: “I had the privilege of working with many of the pupils who entered the competition. The enthusiasm and creativity shown by every single student who entered was inspiring, not to mention eye-opening! The 401 entries for the competition revealed a great deal about how young people in Paisley perceive their town and the places that mean the most to them.”
The young people attended an awards ceremony at Paisley Arts Centre in June, where they received their certificates and prizes, which included digital cameras and canvas prints of their entries.
