Rotarians have launched a search to find budding Van Goghs and William Shakespeares.

The Rotary Club of Settle is co-ordinating the effort to find the Craven Young Artist and Young Writer of the Year and entries are invited from across Craven.

The contests – which have the theme “the event that made a difference to my life” – are open to all youngsters from seven and 18.

Rotarian Bob Hart said: “We had a very good entry for both competitions last year and we are hoping to maintain the same high standards.”

Entry details can be found under Youth Awards/Activities at settlerotary The closing date is Friday, March 21
