A TEENAGER from Stoke Prior has finished runner-up in a creative competition run by Worcestershire Young Archaeologists Club (WYAC).

Lucy Vivian, 16, came second and scooped a £30 prize after putting together her project on the history of Upton Warren School and submitting it for the Alan Jacobs award.

Lucy told The Standard she was delighted, but surprised, with the result.

"I was quite pleased with my project but I didn't think it would do that well.

"My grandad, who died a few years ago, was from Upton Warren.

"He wrote a book about what his life in Upton Warren in the 1920s and 30s was like and there was quite a bit in there about the school which I found interesting so I decided to find out more," she added.

The competition, which had the theme 'My Place in Time', was won by 11-year-old Ray Haagensen for a ten-minute film and poster about Pumphouse Spring near where he lives.

The award was created to remember late Worcestershire archaeologist Alan Jacobs who died last year.

Alan was always keen to inspire young people with a love of archaeology, especially within Worcestershire Young Archaeologists Club.
