Victoria Prentis MP has launched her second Christmas card competition, encouraging young people in North Oxfordshire to design her 2016 Christmas card.

The competition is open to all children of primary school age in the constituency and the only requirement is to include a nativity star in the design. Victoria has written to head teachers of every primary school to inform them of this exciting opportunity for their students.

There will be one winner and three runners up. The winner will have their card design printed on the front of Victoria’s official 2016 Christmas card, which is sent to over one thousand people in North Oxfordshire and across the country. The winner will also be invited to visit the House of Commons with their parents and a friend for a tour, and will receive a certificate and House of Commons goodies as a prize. In addition, Victoria will visit the winning child’s school in 2017. The three runners up will have their card designs printed together on the back of the Christmas card, and will also receive House of Commons goodies.

Victoria commented: “The competition was a brilliant success last year with so many impressive Christmas card designs. It was wonderful looking at each one and recognising the talent of young people in North Oxfordshire.

I realise it is early to start thinking about Christmas but I would like to ensure there is enough time for as many primary schools to get involved as possible. Good luck to all those who submit entries, and I look forward to seeing many more creative designs this year.”

Christmas card designs can either be submitted through participating primary schools or sent directly to the Office of Victoria Prentis MP, Heyford Park House, Camp Road, Upper Heyford, Bicester, OX25 5HD. Please ensure that all entries are received by the office at the start of the October half term.
