Kailyn Shaw, 12, of Kelso High School, is a winner in Rotary International’s annual RIBI Young Writer competition.
The theme this year was the Queen and her birthday.
Young people between the ages of seven and 17 were asked to submit a poem or piece of prose to celebrate the monarch’s 90th year.
Kailyn won the district competition – District 1020, an area which boasts 59 Rotary clubs spread across southern Scotland – from the Forth to the English border, and Newton Stewart to Eyemouth. She was presented with her certificate by Jim Mackie, chair of Kelso Rotarians’ community service committee.
