YORK primary school youngsters have scooped top honours in a Yorkshire-wide design-a-bauble competition.

The contest, which was run by the National Railway Museum in partnership with Yorkshire Education, received more than 700 entries, which will be displayed in the museum’s Great Hall.

The winning design, by year five children from Burton Green Primary School, showed trains travelling through the snow at night and featured the iconic British Rail arrow logo. The children will now receive a special performance of Aladdin at their school on December 12, and will see their winning bauble take pride of place on the museum’s 15ft Christmas tree.

The Railway Museum is running a range of crafting activities as part of its drive to inspire kids to get creative over the holidays, and will have an ice replica of Stephenson’s Rocket stationed by the Minster on the York Ice Trail.
