McCain Foods set the students an exciting challenge by asking them to design a sculpture that would incorporate cycling and recycling, as well as Yorkshire and The Coast for the Tour de Yorkshire.

Jess nailed the brief by using the big yellow Y for Yorkshire as an ice cream cone, bicycle wheels as scoops of ice cream, cogs and pedals as sprinkles and driftwood as a flake.

Her design was chosen from 53 entries by Charlotte Pick at McCain’s and Matt Carter at H C Design. Matt built the sculpture and the finished three metre high result of her work can be seen at the McCain site on Cayton Low Road.

Jess and the two runners-up Liam McCann and Lily Glover were invited to the unveiling before race day.

Jess said: “It was bigger and better than I ever expected. I was so excited when I saw how good it looked.

“I couldn’t quite believe that I had won.”
