A budding young artist from the Shirley Primary School is this year’s winner of the Daniel Zeichner MP Christmas card competition. The MP visited Shirley Primary School, Nuffield Road, Chesterton on Wednesday 18 December to congratulate the winner.
After carefully judging thousands of entries, five-year-old Rose’s design of a festive Father Christmas saw off stiff competition to take the top prize. Runners up were Sarah (10) from Arbury Primary School, Merlyn (9) from Colville Primary and Sophia (9) from Cherry Hinton Primary.
Daniel presented a certificate to Rose in front of the entire school at a special Assembly.
Now Rose’s card is being sent to organisations, charities and businesses right across Cambridge and to many senior national politicians.
Daniel Zeichner MP said:
“I was very impressed by the huge number of entries I received when I asked the children of Cambridge for help designing my Christmas card. As soon as I got back to the office after the election, it was filled with snowmen, reindeers, holly and elves galore. In fact it looks like a winter wonderland. Picking a winner was a real challenge.”
