GAGE Wright has designed a poster to promote fireworks safety for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service.
The 11-year-old Gorefield Primary School pupil entered a competition run by fire-fighters at Wisbech Fire Station, along with more than 100 other hopefuls last month.
Gage's colourful poster with its hard-hitting message - Beautiful colours, deadly effects - captured the eyes of the judging panel and won him a family pass to the Wisbech St Mary fireworks display as first prize.
The youngster visited the fire station to pick up his prize, along with Emily Sharp, 10, who attends Orchards Primary School, and Lacey Price, nine, who attends Payne Primary School, Parson Drove.

Emily picked up a £10 voucher donated by Trisport in Norfolk Street, Wisbech, as second prize, and Lacey won a £5 voucher as third prize.
The poster designed by Gage is now being printed and will be handed out to doctors' surgeries, schools, community centres and shops in the Wisbech area, as the official Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service poster for the fireworks season.
