The runner-up was Morven McBride from St Kentigern's Academy, with Lucy Halliday from Whitburn Academy taking third place.

The competition was sponsored by the Livingston-based footwear company and organised by West Lothian Council's Community Learning & Development Youth Services.

West Lothian Council's Head of Education Services, James Cameron said: "Huge congratulations to Ellie from Linlithgow Academy for her wonderful design. We look forward to the Schuh Design Challenge every year and the creativity and innovation that comes with it. For over twenty years Schuh have sponsored this fantastic competition which showcases the creative talents of so many young people in West Lothian and we are grateful for their continued support."  

Iris Mc Sweeney, Marketing Activations Manager, Schuh, added: "As ever the level of creativity and dedication from the eight schools that participated in this year's schuh Design Challenge was extremely high. With sustainability being a key focus at the moment, this year students were briefed to use as many recycled materials as possible as part of their design. There were some 600 entries in all and once more the judges from schuh were staggered at the ideas, the passion and dedication shown by the students."

"The winning shoe came from Linlithgow Academy. The shoe not only looked great but utilised unconventional recycled materials and was a very worthy winner. Ellie Roy won top prize of the schuh trophy and a year's supply of shoes".
