The city council competition for works to be included in their 2014 calendar stipulated that each entry had to have a Commonwealth Games theme and after poring over all the entries 12 winners were selected.

One of the youngest was Sophie Gilmour from Cloan Nursery, whose picture illustrates October.

She said: "I'm learning to swim at Drumchapel swimming pool so that's why I chose swimmers for my picture."

Steven Carey is 11 and a pupil at Langlands Primary school.

He said: "My picture is made of felt and tissue paper and is a giraffe and monkey playing badminton.

"I'm so proud and pleased and it's the first time I've won a competition."

And Neema Chauhan, S3 pupil from Cleveden Secondary School, was attending the ceremony with her parents. She said: "I am a very keen badminton and basketball player and can't wait for the Games."

A total of 8000 copies of the calendar have been printed and will be distributed to schools, winners, sponsors and council offices throughout the city.

Each winner will receive a certificate, and a goody bag with a £20 gift card for the St Enoch Centre and crayons, pens and paper.

The winning entries will be displayed on the ground floor of the City Chambers this month.

Councillor Stephan Curran, executive member for education and young people, said: "The standard of the submissions has been outstanding this year."
