THE rainbow pictures, which have been appearing in windows all over Langholm, have inspired an idea for a competition.
Alison Hotchkiss, a counsellor for Langholm and Canonbie Schools Cluster, said: “It all started by seeing the lovely rainbow windows already in the town and my wish to do something to encourage all the children and young people in our area to fill up spaces with rainbows to help people, who see them, to smile.
“It has also grown as a way of showing support in working together to make life the best it can be, something Langholm and the surrounding area have shown during this quarantine period.
“I didn’t want to limit it to school children so the competition is split into four age groups: under five; under 10; under 15; and 15 to 18.”
Adam German, the Langholm Academy art teacher, has agreed to be the judge.
Entries will have to be submitted online but it does mean that everyone will be able to see them.
The prize for each age group winner will be an Amazon gift voucher.
