Work in­cor­po­rates Tour de York­shire, re­cy­cling and the coast

The Scarborough News - - SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT: GEORGE PINDAR SCHOOL - Com­piled by Claire Mat­son Ge­orge Pin­dar School @thescar­boronews

Ge­orge Pin­dar School stu­dent Jess Wal­lace has had her great sculp­ture de­sign brought to life as com­pe­ti­tion prize. McCain Foods set the stu­dents an ex­cit­ing chal­lenge by ask­ing them to de­sign a sculp­ture that would in­cor­po­rate cy­cling and re­cy­cling, as well as York­shire and The Coast for the Tour de York­shire.

Jess nailed the brief by us­ing the big yel­low Y for York­shire as an ice cream cone, bi­cy­cle wheels as scoops of ice cream, cogs and ped­als as sprin­kles and drift­wood as a flake.

Her de­sign was cho­sen from 53 en­tries by Char­lotte Pick at McCain’s and Matt Carter at H C De­sign. Matt built the sculp­ture and the fin­ished three me­tre high re­sult of her work can be seen at the McCain site on Cay­ton Low Road.

Jess and the two run­ner­sup Liam McCann and Lily Glover were in­vited to the un­veil­ing be­fore race day.

Jess said: “It was big­ger and better than I ever ex­pected. I was so ex­cited when I saw how good it looked.

“I couldn’t quite be­lieve that I had won.”
