Council chief executive officer Gary Stevenson said there was an "unprecedented" number of sign-ups for the regional art competition.

"And what they created has blown me away," he said.

"From model aeroplanes and artwork to board games and everything in between, we can rest assured we have a great generation of inventors and creators coming up through the ranks.

"Times might be tough, but our youth are resilient and worth celebrating."
