|Hugo Grundy (front, light blue shirt), Richard E Grant, Grace Nichols and other winners|
I first heard of Hugo when he and his brother Dualtagh were joint first prize winners in the Ted Hughes Young Poets' Award, adjudicated by Andrew Motion, in 2008.
They have been bagging prizes ever since and their mother, Siobhán, keeps me up to date with all their successes. Remember their names - these kids are going to be big in the writing world in the future.
Hugo said, to his local paper: 'I’m delighted because it’s the biggest competition I have ever entered. When I came up to read my poem I felt quite intense and shaky but when I got into reading it I felt proud and calm.'
Go here to read Hugo's winning poem 'Peter's Room' and remember as you read it that he is 10 years old!!!
