Jaipreet Gill, aged 11, from Walsall, worked on a bold and bright pattern which caught the eye of judges from interior blinds company

The competition asked pupils to submit a design of their ideal bedroom blind. The winner would have their design recreated handmade.

Jaipreet, who attends Park Hall Junior Academy, scooped a prize of £200 for her school.

And the firm has now delivered her very own bespoke blind, decorated with her winning design.

Jaipreet, who lives in Skip Lane, said: “I’m thrilled and it looks brilliant. After competing with more than 200 other pupils from across the country I never thought I would win but it just goes to show that if you don’t have a go, you just never know.”

Park Hall Academy said that the money given to them by will go towards more art supplies for the children so that they can continue to bring on future generations of artists.
