Design a Christmas card for the North West Norfolk MP
North West Norfolk MP James Wild is inviting school children to get creative and design his official 2021 Christmas card.
It follows the success of his Christmas card design competition last year when more than 150 children took part.
The competition is open to primary school children attending a school in the North West Norfolk constituency.
The winning design will be James’ official Christmas card for 2021 and will be sent out to individuals, charities, businesses, and others across North West Norfolk, with the winner’s name and school printed inside. The card featuring the design will also be sent to the Prime Minister.
Last year, the winning design was by North Wootton Academy pupil, Isla Manning, aged seven, who painted a picture of Father Christmas, a snowman, Rudolph, and a Christmas tree. The annual competition is being sponsored once again by Jenny Richards at Prontaprint, Lynn.
Entries should be A4 or smaller and preferably done in paint, felt tips, or crayons as coloured pencils do not reproduce well when printed (no glitter!).
While designs on all themes are welcome, James particularly encourages entries that reflect the theme of what the children are most looking forward to this Christmas.
He said, “I’m delighted to launch my second Christmas card competition and I look forward to seeing the creative designs from pupils at local schools showing what they are most looking forward to this festive season. Last year’s competition was very hard to judge with so many impressive entries and I encourage all schools to take part.”
Two runners up will have their designs printed on the back of James’ official card.
Send your entries to James Wild MP, House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA or scanned designs to firstname.lastname@example.org. For each entry please include the name, classes, and school clearly marked. Please also provide an email address for your school. Entries must arrive by November 5.
