Year 7 student Jessica Morris wins Jo Cotterill competition!

Jessica Morris has won first place in the competition launched earlier this year by our Patron of Reading, Jo Cotterill, to design a t-shirt for her to wear at her talks and events.

Jo opened the competition exclusively to DGS students, and asked that the designs be inspired by a variety of her books. A huge number of fantastic entries were received, and you can see Jo talk about some of her favourite designs in this video:

Second place went to Halle Kennedy, whose design is also now featured as the banner on Jo's website, and third place went to Elizabeth Sheard.

Jessica's winning design will now get made into a t-shirt that Jo will wear at her events. Jessica will also receive a t-shirt and a bundle of books.
