We were delighted for students Emily, Issy and Zubaidah who were recently invited to the Bluecoat Centre for the Liverpool HeARTbeat Awards.
They were named as prize-winners for the Liverpool HeARTbeat competition having been selected from a staggering 5000 entries! Entrants had to submit their own creative masterpiece of whatever makes their heart happy and their artistic talents captured the attention of judges.
As well as attending the special awards ceremony alongside the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Emily, Issy and Zubaidah also got to meet Tim Quinn from Marvel Comics who inspired everyone with his stories and advice. He said: “Dream of where you are and where you would like to be… Figure out what you love doing more than anything else and get your teachers to help you along the way.”
As a first prize winner, Emily was presented with a one-of-a-kind, personalised piece of artwork from one of the Marvel artists. Issy and Zubaidah were rewarded with vouchers for their work.
Liverpool HeARTbeat works with young people across Merseyside with the aim of bringing out their inner superhero.
Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to Tim Quinn and Liverpool HeARTbeat for giving our students such a memorable experience.
