In January, local schools were invited to enter our “Celebration of Royal Ascot” competition.  

This initiative is a community project to give children and schools in the local area the opportunity to have their artwork displayed in the Ascot Heath Tunnel, providing a colourful walkway for both Royal Ascot visitors and local residents.
Pupils aged 4-11 years from 8 local schools submitted their artwork which had to incorporate the theme “A Celebration of Royal Ascot”, to be in with a chance of winning cash prizes of £1,000 for their school, as well as Amazon vouchers to spend for themselves.  

All the entries were judged by Ascot Staff, together with Flat Jockey Ryan Moore, who picked his favourite.
On Saturday, 12 May 2018 we celebrated the winners: Charan Bains from Holy Trinity School winner of the 4-6 yr category, Zara Hames from St Francis Catholic School, 7-9 yr category and Albany Barralet from LVS Junior School - 10-11yr categories.  

The children’s artwork is going to be installed in the Ascot Heath Tunnel in early June and we encourage everyone to come and enjoy the wonder of a child’s perspective of Royal Ascot as much as we have.
With thanks to all the participating schools: Ascot Heath Infant School; Cheapside CE Primary School, Ascot; Holy Trinity CE Primary School, Sunningdale; LVS Ascot Junior School; The Marist Preparatory School; St Francis Catholic Primary School; St Michael's CE Primary School, Sunninghill and South Ascot Village School.
