Norfolk youngsters’ Olympic art work goes on show at Norwich’s Castle Museum
Youngsters who have been inspired by the Olympic Games have see their work go on show at Norwich's castle.
Norfolk County Council held a competition to get schools and students thinking about the values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, their history and what it means to hold the event in the UK.
More than 1,000 children entered the competition, representing schools from across the county.
The entries by the winners and the runners-up are now on display at the Castle Museum.
Barry Stone, cabinet member for cultural services at Norfolk County Council, said: 'It is clear to see that Norfolk's children and young people have really captured the spirit of London 2012 and are excited about seeing the Games coming to their home country.

At yesterday's exhibition launch, the winners were presented with their awards. The winners were chosen by a panel made up of staff from Norfolk County Council's libraries, museums and children's services' departments, as well as Joseph Ballard from the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (Locog).
