Winners announced for the Love the Lagoon school creative competition

The Love Lagoon campaign has announced the winners of its schools competition.

Lagoon competition winner

Hundreds of pupils got creative to show their support for Swansea having the world's first tidal lagoon power plant by colouring pictures, writing poems or making videos to back the cause.

Lord Mayor of Swansea Philip Downing was faced with the tough task of going through all the entries to choose worthy winners.

Now he's named those who have scooped prizes from family leisure passes to the LC to after school bounces for a whole class or a celebration party.

The competition has been sponsored by Swansea LC, Go Air and Gower College Swansea

Cllr Downing said: "I want to say well done to all the children who entered the competition. It was very hard to judge the winners.

"I was quite overwhelmed with the quality of the videos schools produced and the pictures the children coloured in. There was clearly a lot of effort put into each entry."

Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader, said: "Thank you to every pupil and all the schools that have taken part.

"The lagoon, if approved by the UK Government, would be a world first for Swansea with the potential to transform green energy production.

"If it goes ahead it'll be today's children and future generations who will benefit the most from the lagoon and the technology that would be pioneered in Swansea.

"That's why the campaign is urging Prime Minister to give the plan the green light as soon as possible."

The winners of the competition are:

* Best coloured picture: Casey Leigh Croucher - Cadle Primary School; Kelly Clarke - Townhill Community School; and Annabel Webster - Gowerton Primary School.

* Secondary school competition: Keira Wickham - Cefn Hengoed Community School

* Video competition:  Talycopa Primary School; Clydach Primary School
