And the winners are...

As part of the Schools & Community Programme of The Great Big Rhino Project, schools and community groups across Devon were invited to apply for one of thirty life-size juvenile rhino sculptures which have been funded by Arts Council England. These sculptures will be displayed in indoor public venues across South Devon for 10 weeks in the summer of 2016 along with the life-size adult rhino sculptures.
