Christmas card challenge for local pupils

Two local politicians have launched their annual competition to find a design for their Christmas card.
 
Clwyd South Assembly Member Ken Skates and Member of Parliament Susan Elan Jones are inviting children from primary schools across their constituency to send in their ideas for a Christmas card that would be sent to schools, businesses and charitable organisations throughout the country.
 
The competition will be judged by Wales’ First Minister Carwyn Jones and the winner will be announced in early December.
 
Local AM Ken Skates said, “Last year we had a fantastic response to our competition and received literally hundreds of entries.
 
“It was very hard work picking a winner and I was very proud of the finished product.”
 
Susan Elan Jones MP said, “Both Ken and I visit schools in our constituency throughout the year and I never cease to be amazed by the creativity that pupils display in their work.
 
“This is an opportunity for one lucky person to have their design professionally printed and sent out to hundreds of people around the country. I’m really looking forward to seeing this year’s entries.”
 
Entries are welcome from primary school pupils whatever their age and must be received by Ken Skates’ constituency office in Llangollen by November 2.
