A Littleport student is one step closer to winning $5,000 after her peace poster won the local round of Littleport Lions Club’s annual peace poster competition.

Hannah Turnock, who goes to Littleport Academy, won with her 'Journey of Peace' themed poster, beating other children from her school and Witchford Village College.

Michael Stares, Littleport Lions Club president, said: "I was very impressed by the entries locally and it is obvious that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them."

The eventual winner will receive $5000 at a ceremony in New York and the 23 runners up will each receive a certificate and $500.

This is the 32nd year of the poster competition.
