Youngsters showed their support for Sidmouth’s Fairtrade Fortnight by taking part in a poster competition.
Primary school pupils came up with creative illustrations about why people should buy the products, to be put on display at Sidmouth Library.
On Saturday, staff presented winners Lottie Mills, Jessica Bryher and Yasmin Thomas with their prizes.
Carol Pentecost, library supervisor, said: “It was a really hard choice to make, as all the posters were so good. In the end, we felt that Lottie, Jessica and Yasmin put the message across in a particularly eye-catching, yet clear and simple way.”
Sidmouth’s Fairtrade Fortnight draws to a close this weekend, following a packed programme of events including a talk from cacao farmers from Ghana.
