Our Christmas Card Competition returns!

Thursday, 12 October 2017

I’m delighted to invite students from across the Central Coast to enter our Christmas Card Competition. This year’s theme is “Our Aussie Christmas” and invites students years K-6 to submit drawings, paintings or artwork that reflect what an Australian Christmas means to them.

Previous years have seen some wonderful designs, with the winner having their artwork placed on the front of my Christmas card that’s sent to homes and businesses across my electorate on the Central Coast.

There are some great prizes donated by Bendigo Bank in East Gosford including:

                        1st Prize - $250 bank account                           

                        2nd Prize - $150 bank account

                        3rd Prize - $100 bank account

                        And five highly commended $50 bank account prizes.

Because of strict printing deadlines this year, there’s not much time to enter. The competition will close at 5pm on Thursday 2 November. The entry form and rules for this competition are below.

I look forward to your students’ involvement, and thank Julie Eastham and team at Bendigo Bank in East Gosford for their generosity and support of this initiative in its third year.

If I can ever be of any assistance to you, or your school in any way, please do not hesitate to contact my office. I look forward to receiving some outstanding entries.
