Five arts students have benefited from an award scheme run by an Axminster organisation.

Each has received a grant of £200 to help them in their study of arts-based courses.

Each Year, Axminster Arts uses profits from the Arts Café in the Old Courthouse, Church Street, to give sponsorship to students who have attended local schools and who then go into higher education to study one of the Arts.

This year, five students have been awarded a total of £1,000 in sponsorship -each receiving £200 to assist them with the purchase of the necessary materials/equipment, for their chosen course.

The five award winners represent a good cross-section of the arts and they have all successfully completed their first term in higher education.

They were: Robin Lane, who attended Holyrood School, in Chard, and is now studying film production at the London Metropolitan University; Jodie Miller, who attended Axe Valley Community College and is now studying fashion design at University College, Falmouth; Mia Shurey, who attended Colyton Grammar school and is now studying art at Somerset College; Chloe Stratta, who attended Colyton Grammar school and is now studying music at Manchester University and Taryn Taylor, who attended Colyton Grammar School and is now studying drama at the Oxford School of Drama

The students will be holding a joint exhibition at the Arts Café during their Easter Holiday, in April 2012.

The scheme remains open and readers who are currently studying in a local sixth form and who are applying to study one of the arts starting in the autumn of 2011, might like to apply for this year’s Young Persons’ Award.

Application forms are available from the Arts Café or by emailing jennyfells@btinternet.com.

The closing date for applications is Monday, August 1.
