City youngster's creativity showcased on back of Tesco van

A COVENTRY youngster who won a poster competition to mark Diwali has had her design printed on the back of a Tesco delivery van.

Ishika Dusara’s design caught the eye of judges after the Richard Lee Primary pupil summarised the festival – celebrated by Hindu’s, Sikh’s and Jain’s – by getting creative.

Also known as the festival of lights, Diwali – which begins on October 28 and ends on November 1 – celebrates the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.

To mark the festival, Tesco asked pupils from schools across Coventry to bring out their creative side and design a poster that demonstrates what the festival means to them.

Tesco received hundreds of entries from schools across the region, however it was Ishika’s work that made the best impression.

Jamie Tonks, Tesco store manager said: “The Diwali poster competition was a great success and we were completely blown away by the standard of entries.

“However we particularly loved Ishika’s design and her use of colour and symbolism.

“The finished result looks fantastic and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate mark this iconic festival.”
