Students were invited to create a piece of art to reflect the 2019 competition theme, 'Introduce Yourself'. Students could use this theme to convey who they are; this could be a self-portrait or a reflection on the things, feelings, surroundings etc. that make all COBIS students so wonderfully unique. We received over 600 entries from 110 COBIS schools. Well done to all students who entered; our judges were extremely impressed by the standard of artwork.
