It’s been 10 years since

Waitrose opened its first store in Scotland and to celebrate this special anniversary Waitrose Milngavie is running a drawing competition for children and teenagers.

Adults with an artistic flair don’t have to miss out either, as there is a category for those aged 16 and over.

One lucky winner could see their design on canvas shopping bags in Waitrose stores across Scotland.

To enter the competition entrants are asked to create a design that celebrates Waitrose’s 10th anniversary and the abundance of delicious food and drink produced in Scotland.

The competition has four age categories: one for children aged 12 and under, ages 8-11, 12-15 years and teenagers age 16 and over. Children can either take part individually or through their school.

The overall winner will receive a £100 Waitrose/John Lewis gift card, and their design will be printed onto canvas bags, which will be given away for free in all Scottish branches on June 6. The runner ups in each category will receive a £25 Waitrose/John Lewis gift card.

Waitrose Milngavie branch manager Rebecca Wollam said: “We’re very excited about the competition and hope to receive lots of entries. We’re looking forward to seeing how entrants choose to celebrate Waitrose’s 10th anniversary and the wonderful food and drink that Scotland has to offer.”

The closing date for the competition is April 24, with winners announced the following month.
