We asked primary school children to design an A3 poster which would highlight the importance of physical activity and encourage children to live a lively life, so that they grow into healthy, active adults.130 schools across Essex entered the competition and we received a total of 2567 posters!Our judging panel, comprised of representatives from Healthwatch Essex, Healthy Schools Essex, Active Essex and Healthwatch Southend, were very impressed with all the entries and had a very hard time coming to a final decision.
In the junior category, children were asked to include some sort of message in their poster.
