Teens win Clean Slate prizes
TEENAGERS from North Somerset have won prizes for their art work during a competition ran by Avon and Somerset police.
The Clean Slate art contest was created as part of the force’s youth engagement work and was launched in April.
Hundreds of entries were received and were judged by a panel of artists, academics and senior police officers.
The top 50 were put on display in an exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol throughout July.
An award ceremony was then held to hand out prizes to individual winners.
