Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP has announced the winners of the 2014 Mulgoa Christmas Card Competition.
Tanya Davies approached local schools earlier this year to invite them to be a part of the competition. All interested students submitted artworks, competing to be the winning entry to be used as Tanya Davies' Christmas card that will be sent to various members of our community.
The students were asked to recognise the special Christmas season in some way and Tanya Davies encouraged students to be creative, humorous or reflective of the local area or local people.
The overall winner this year was Miss Aiyana Cabanero, a Year 5 student from Montgrove College, who submitted a traditional Christmas drawing of mother Mary cradling her baby Jesus. Aiyana was presented with a framed certificate and a $100 voucher to ToysRUs in front of her fellow students at afternoon assembly last week.
As well as the overall winner, Tanya Davies awarded winners from each of following three categories and presented them with a framed certificate and a gift voucher to ToysRUs:
Most Creative – Gemma Benson from Clairgate Public School, who drew Santa Claus and his sleigh of kangaroos flying over Ayres Rock.
Kindergarten to Year 2 – Scarlett Tropiano from Mulgoa Public School, who drew a traditional Christmas tree with presents and the message “Love You Mummy”.
Year 3 to Year 6 – Alexis Verheyen from Glenmore Park Public School, who drew a snowman in Santa’s uniform next to a sign post with directions to the North Pole, church and nan and pop’s place.
"Congratulations and thank you to everyone who entered the competition. The response I received for the competition this year has been positively extraordinary. I am really impressed with the high quality of entries; making this year’s competition the toughest to judge, as so many entries were worthy of recognition." Tanya Davies said.
