Following confirmation that the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s Railway in Wartime event has been cancelled, the heritage railway has launched a themed drawing competition for children.
The winner of the competition will win a trip of the railway for their entire class, a personalised headboard, and a Pullman Dining Experience for their favourite teacher and a guest.
The competition is a drawing contest for children, aged between four and eleven.
Entries should be submitted by Friday 28 August at 5 pm and will be shortlisted by Chris Price, General Manager of NYMR.
The winner will be announced on 9 October, during what would have been the Railway in Wartime event that usually welcomes more than 30,000 visitors.
Chris Price, General Manager of NYMR, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to teach children about the past as well as the importance of preserving our heritage railways. It was such a tough decision to have to cancel this year’s Railway in Wartime event due to the global pandemic, but we are so excited to see what the children come up with, and their interpretation of the Railway in Wartime. We’re hoping that this competition gives families the opportunity to get creative and feel inspired during these uncertain times.”
To enter, entrants must send their drawings to [email protected], including name, age, school and favourite teacher.
