Mark Pawsey launches 2010 Christmas Card competition

Mark Pawsey MP has written to the Heads of all Primary Schools in his Constituency suggesting that pupils might wish to spend some time designing a Christmas card over their half term break for entry into a competition to be the creator of his card for 2010.  The card will be sent by him to contacts across Rugby and in Westminster.  The deadline for entries is Friday 5th November and the entries will be judged by the Pawsey family.

The design should be of A4 size and the prize for the winning entrant will be a visit to the House of Commons with a friend and their parents/guardians.  During this visit they will be treated to a tour of the Houses of Parliament and ‘Tea on the Terrace’.  A credit for the design will be shown on the card, which can be in any style and any number of colours.

Mark said

“As this is my first year as a Member of Parliament I have decided to run a competition for local primary school children to design the Christmas card which I will be sending out later this year.”

Mark continued

“The winning design will be used to create a card which I will send to all contacts, colleagues and friends with Season’s Greetings for Christmas 2010.  I hope that the offer of a visit to the House of Commons will encourage young designers to take part in this exciting competition.”
