Children from Cumbernauld are to bury objects that remind them of life in the town in a 100-year time capsule.
The children put their items into the time capsule on Friday
The competition was organised by CCCL, the company tasked with redeveloping the much maligned town centre.
The winner was eight-year-old Matthew Dent, who suggested a copy of Gregory's Girl, which was filmed in Cumbernauld.
Councillor Barry McCulloch said the time capsule was a step toward the town's "rebirth", following negative publicity over its 1960s architecture.
The items will include a copy of the TV advert 'What's it called? Cumbernauld'.
Other objects are a 50-year-old copy of the local newspaper, a Clyde football strip and a student film about Cumbernauld's town centre development.
The items will be interred during a ceremony at the new £40m Antonine Shopping Centre, which will replace the building voted Britain's most hated in a poll of 10,000 people last year.
The town, which was created in 1956, has also won the Carbuncle award for Scotland's most dismal town centre on two occasions.
However, Mr McCulloch described the burial ceremony as a part of its "rebirth".
"The competition is a chance for local children to contribute something towards Cumbernauld's future history," he said.
"We are planning to mark the burial spot with a special commemorative plaque.
"It will be a permanent reminder of the time capsule competition and signifies another positive step forward in Cumbernauld's rebirth."
