A young girl has bagged a prize for her school after creating the winning design to go onto a reusable grocery bag.

Latanyah Byfield, eight, who attends St Louis Catholic Combined School, created the image for Tesco’s Broadfield store which is promoting its new Click & Collect Groceries online shopping service.

Latanyah Byfield won £250 for the school plus a £25 Tesco gift card for herself.

But the best prize of all was seeing the winning artwork printed on 250 re-usable jute shopping bags which will now be distributed free to parents and children at her school.

This week Latanyah, accompanied by classmates, family and school staff, visited the Click &Collect unit at Broadfields, to pick up the prizes.

School admin assistant Bev Meads said: “We are really proud of Latanyah. She is a member of our arts and crafts club so it is something she enjoys. She attended Tesco with two of her class friends who had also entered the competition, and the teacher, Mrs Allison Robee, who co-ordinated it.”

Latanyah created her design at home as part of her homework and it was entered into the competition with 59 other designs from the school.

When she went to collect her prize on Monday she was given a bag of goodies in addition to the £25 gift card.

Schoolchildren were asked by the supermarket to design an eye-catching picture to go alongside the Click & Collect design. The idea was to promote the new service which involves shoppers ordering groceries online and then picking them up at a time to suit them, from a collection point in the car park without ever having to leave their car. The groceries collection service is the first of its kind in Aylesbury.

Latanyah’s entry was selected by judges for its colour, impact, sense of fun and style.
