Pupils design anti-litter posters for Stansted Airport
THREE young artists will see their artwork displayed across Stansted Airport after winning an anti-litter campaign competition.
Rosie Stubbs, Eleanor Saville and Ellyse Wright, from Alec Hunter Humanities College in Braintree, won a challenge from the Uttlesford transport hub to design a dazzling poster aimed at motivating passengers and staff to bin their rubbish.
Hamish Birley, assistant headteacher from Alec Hunter Humanities College, said: “We were delighted to be invited to Stansted to celebrate the fantastic achievements of the three girls.
“Their artwork looked stunning, and they were shocked and delighted to see their artwork displayed on the 30 foot high electronic flight information boards.
“It is great that their artistic talents can be appreciated by so many people and it is very rewarding to think that their work will contribute to visitors to the UK being more litter conscience.”

Kate Newcombe, head judge and project leader of the ‘Keep Stansted Tidy’ campaign, said: “I’d like to congratulate all of the very worthy winners – the standard of artwork was extraordinarily high which meant we had an extremely tricky job selecting the best designs.
“The aim of the ‘Keep Stansted Tidy’ campaign is to ensure all visitors using Stansted, especially those arriving to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, have the best possible impression of the airport and the UK.”
The prize for each of the students included an iPod touch, donated by airport cleaning company, ISS, and an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the airport’s fire service.
