Blue Toon pupils have been congratulated by their MP for their performance in the UK Rock Challenge finals.
It comes as MP David Duguid vows he will do more to ensure funding for the scheme is improved.
Peterhead Academy students finished third in the contest after being the only Scottish school left battling eight others at the event in Grimsby, Lincolnshire.
Scottish Conservative MP Mr Duguid went to cheer on the local team. On returning to the north-east, he said: “I was delighted to see them rewarded for their efforts with a third-placed finish.
“I was worried earlier this year when I heard that the Aberdeenshire heats were to be cancelled, and was pleased that Aberdeenshire Council decided to continue their support for the events.
“The project itself is far more than just a talent contest.
“UK Rock Challenge works with the ‘Be Your Best Foundation’ with the aim to help young people enjoy school and live pro-active and positive lifestyles free of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.
“Having supported the event for the last two years, I want to do more to help encourage more local schools to get involved.
“I will also be engaging with UK ministers and local authorities to make sure that support for this extremely valuable project is not only maintained, but improved.”
