Entrants must be aged between 7 and 11 years old on June 17, 2017. They must be available to attend Sandy Carnival and where possible any other events in the forthcoming year.

This year the judges will be Debbie McIntyre and Ruth Brown from Inskip and Davie, Jackie Horn, Carnival Queen from 2016, and 2016 Paralympic silver medallist, Harriet Lee.

Sandy Carnival will take place on Saturday, June 17 and this year’s theme is Best of British.
