Romans and competitions

Romans2, originally uploaded by LMH_.

Last January this Roman display won a competition for the best display at in a thread at the TA Chat Forum. I was pleased to have won the right to put a nice image in my sig for a while and the children involved in creating the display were excited to hear that their display was voted the winner.
This competition, however, is for a rather more substantial reward!
Belair publishes a vast range of books about display. (See the books page in my sidebar for some examples.)
