Young artists picked up their prizes after coming out on top in a competition inspired by nature.
East Hampshire District Council set children the challenge to create beautiful pieces of art focussed on trees and wildlife.
The winners in three age groups visited Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton to collect their awards in a socially distanced ceremony.
The competition was organised by Cllr Diana Tennyson, member for Chawton, Medstead and Four Marks, as part of the council’s commitment to fighting climate change.
The council is working with local landowners, tree wardens and other authorities to see 120,000 trees planted across the district.
Cllr Tennyson said: “The children created pictures of wildlife in trees because trees, especially mature trees, are important habitats for wildlife.
“The aim of the competition was to encourage the children to start thinking about the environment and the important role trees play in our environment.
“The pictures were judged by renowned local artists Rachel Hudson and she agreed that pieces were of an incredibly high standard.”
Some winners were unable to attend the ceremony.

3rd: Iris Orbell
