A DENEND Primary School pupil was a prize winner in a competition looking at Fife's history.

Pupils from schools across the Kingdom have landed top prizes and the chance to be involved in a new augmented reality app, which will allow visitors to trace the footsteps of historic royals in the Heartlands of Fife.

In the Footsteps of Kings, which is due to launch in summer, will bring the area’s rich history to life through augmented reality allowing locals and tourists of all ages to interact with characters and take part in activities tailored to each location. The free app is being developed by British augmented reality company AliveLab who create the Mardles range of products specifically for children.

Over 75 Primary four pupils entered the competition to design the Jester’s clothes, which was won by Cameron Robertson from East Wemyss Primary School. Cameron’s use of vibrant colours impressed the judges, earning him first place and an Android tablet. There were three runners up, Lacy Russell and Mia Lumsle from Denend Primary School, in Cardenden, and Eleanor McDonald from East Wemyss Primary School,who were all awarded with a goody bag.

Commenting on the success of the school competitions and looking ahead to the summer launch, Fife Tourism Partnership Manager Ann Camus said: “The quality of entries was extremely high, making it really difficult to choose the winners so the pupils should all be proud of themselves, whether they were awarded a prize or not."
