Helen Launches Christmas Card Competition

Helen Grant MP, the Member of Parliament for Maidstone and The Weald, has launched a competition for primary school children to design her Christmas Card for 2013.

Helen will shortly be writing to the primary schools in her constituency inviting them to participate. The competition is open to any primary school aged child who lives or goes to school in the Maidstone and the Weald constituency.  She is happy to accept entries either from local schools or direct from an individual.

Entries must be on unfolded paper and no larger than A4 in size.  No cotton wool, glitter, glues or other decorative items should be used, as the winning entry will need to be copied and printed.   Entries should contain: the entrant's name, age, primary school and residential postal address (including post code) clearly marked on the reverse.

Entries should be sent no later than Friday 15th November 2013 to:

Helen Grant MP
(Christmas Card Competition)
Member of Parliament for Maidstone & The Weald
House of Commons

Helen said: "I wanted to do something different this year, instead of sending a traditional Parliamentary Christmas Card.  I saw it as an opportunity to connect with some of our youngest people in Maidstone and The Weald.  I hope many will enter and I wish them all the very best of luck".
