Ruth Cadbury MP has launched her fourth Christmas card competition for all primary aged pupils in Brentford, Isleworth, Chiswick, Osterley and Hounslow.

Ruth said:

"All children are invited to get creative and start gathering ideas for what they could include in their cards. The winning Christmas card should promote festive cheer in the local area, as well as to showcase the artistic talent of our pupils. Ruth will choose a winning card by the middle of November. Please let me know if you would like to get involved and my team will send a crib sheet for you to distribute. Last year’s winners were Aleycia (St Mary’s Cotholic), Poorti (Alexandra Primary School), Paavah (Nishkam School) and Kyla (Spring Grove Primary School)."

Children are advised to include or use strong colour or contrast in their designs as that prints well. Any theme that celebrates Christmas, another winter-time festival or a wintery theme is welcomed. The competition is open to all primary aged pupils in Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth, Osterley and Hounslow.

******The closing date for entries is 9th November and the winning card will be Ruth’s official Christmas card for 2018****

 The designer of the winning entry will be invited, along with their parents or carers to meet Ruth for afternoon tea and for a Tour of Parliament. Ruth will also present the award in assemblies.

Ruth added, "I hope the competition will be as successful as it has been in the previous three years. This is an excellent opportunity for children to develop and enhance their inventive and creative skills. I look forward to receiving and admiring the artwork from children in the Constituency. I know I can expect some brilliant entries from a variety of schools."
