Wandsworth Prep pupil wins top prize in Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Schools Award

Posted on: 02 May 2017

Congratulations to Leo in Year 4 at Wandsworth Preparatory School, who won first prize in his age group category in the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Schools Award 2017. Leo's artwork was chosen from amongst 4,000 entries. 

Funded by the Mayor of London and supported by Arts Council England, the Fourth Plinth competition invites world class artists to create new works for display in Trafalgar Square. Each year, London schools are invited to enter the Fourth Plinth Schools Awards. The awards give children a chance to get involved with public art and offer new views of London. 

Leo created his own outcome called ‘Friendship'. Leo's work has been professionally photographed for a display at City Hall, where the winning entries are being shown from 24th April to 30th June 2017. There are winner and runner-up prizes awarded for different age categories as well as for the best work from each borough. Winners receive a prize of art materials, courtesy of Cass Art Supplies, presented by a range of judges.

Commenting on the prize, Bridget Saul, Headteacher at Wandsworth Preparatory School, said:

“The London Mayor's annual Fourth Plinth Competition attracts entries from primary and secondary schools in all boroughs of Greater London. It is an outstanding achievement for Leo, whose work has been chosen by some very discerning judges as the winner of his age group category. It is also testament to how our broad curriculum unearths the individual talents of each child.”

Leo was presented with a trophy given to him by David Shrigley, the current commission for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.
