We covered the Shropshire Young Thinkers Awards 2020, which was put together by Morris & Co. Around 400 children aged 7-12 entered the competition where the mission was to design an emblem that linked Charles Darwin to Shrewsbury.

The judges had managed to get 400 entries down to just 20 and out of those 20, there would be a few “highly recommended winners” who won their design printed onto a tea towel and a blown up image of their design. Then there was the winner, who’s design would fly as a flag above UCS, The Morris Building and be the first ever flag flown above the Flax Mill when it reopens.
We speak to artist Linda Edwards, Mayor Phil Gillam, Paul Kirkbright, Katy Morris and of course the winner…..
