Twenty Norfolk students will see their artwork hit the road on the back of a fleet of buses to take a recycling message around the county.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to see the work of the students from two schools and a college, which urges the public to “reduce, reuse and recycle”.
Teams of youngsters and teachers from Broadland High, Yarmouth College and two teams from Reepham High were the winners of the “school bus waste wrap” contest, which challenged them to design innovative recycling posters.
The winners gathered outside County Hall in Norwich to see their work on the back of four of the 26 school buses that will carry the posters.

They were also presented with framed prints of their work and bags of recycled goodies.
Ian Monson, Norfolk County Council's cabinet member for environment and waste, said: “The designs are excellent. The posters will give people a positive incentive to reduce, reuse and recycle waste when they're sitting in their cars with nothing to do.”

The competition was organised by the council's School Waste Action Club and Norfolk County Services. It encouraged people to combine original photography with powerful slogans.
The school bus fleet covers more than 400,000 miles of Norfolk's roads each year. The posters will be on them for five years, so could be seen by many thousands of people on their travels.
Lynda Lee, art and photography teacher at Reepham High, said: “We are thrilled that two of our designs have been chosen as winner. The students are very keen to promote positive environment change within the school.
“The opportunity to make a more regional impact and connect with other schools inspired them to produce some very imaginative ideas using their artistic and photographic skills.”
