AN arty Dudley sixth form student is celebrating after winning a national poster designing competition to raise awareness of carbon monoxide dangers.

Bishop Milner Catholic School pupil, 17-year-old Harmanpreet Ghuman, was chosen as the winner of the 16-17-year-old category in the North of England, for her colourful design depicting the dangers of the silent killing gas.

The aim of the competition, organised by The Carbon Monoxide and Gas Safety Society, was to raise awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning in a bid to save lives and preserve health.

Harmanpreet, who is studying science A-Levels at the Burton Road school, travelled to the House of Commons for the prize giving and was awarded £100 for herself as well as £500 for her school, which is to be spent on specialist science equipment.

Mrs Lloyd, Head of sixth-form, said: “Harmanpreet is very hardworking and very motivated and we are of course delighted she won.”
