Fame could be on cards for local schoolkids

SCHOOLCHILDREN are being urged to get their entries in as the deadline looms for a Christmas card competition which will be judged by the First Minister of Wales.

Clwyd South Assembly Member Ken Skates and MP Susan Elan Jones are encouraging pupils at all junior schools in the constituency to get into the festive spirit and show their artistic side.
The winning design, which will be picked by First Minister Carwyn Jones, will become the Labour pair’s official Christmas card and will be sent out to constituents, businesses, schools and voluntary groups in Wrexham and Denbighshire.
AM Mr Skates said: “Anyone who wants to take part needs to get their designs in soon as there are less than two weeks before the deadline. The talented children in Clwyd South always throw themselves into this competition and we get some fantastic entries, and I’m hoping this year will be no different.”
MP Ms Jones added: “The competition closes on Friday, November 1, so the sooner the children get cracking the better!
"We run the competition every year and it’s a good opportunity to engage with young people in Clwyd South, and a fun way for them to learn a little bit about who represents them.”
Children should ask their teachers to send their designs to Mr Skates’ constituency office at Unit 19, The Malthouse, Regent Street, Llangollen, LL20 8HS.
