CITY youngsters are being asked to come up with new ideas to revitalise overlooked spaces in their local communities.

The competition is part of Forgotten Spaces 2011: Sheffield, and follows on from the national competition when artists, designers and architects submitted their own plans to improve the city’s neglected and forgotten spaces.

The winning idea and two runners up will receive up to £1,000 in resources to fund improvements to their school or college.

Results will be announced at a winners’ reception at Sheffield Hallam University and all of the entries will be exhibited in a public space.

The competition is being run by the Royal Institute of British Architects Yorkshire and Sheffield Hallam University.
