Children are being asked to help spread some seasonal cheer by entering our annual seasonal card competition.
We’re looking for a cheerful festive design to be used on its electronic greeting card. Designs can represent religious festivals or aspects of the season.
Entries from youngsters aged 11 or below who live or go to school in the borough are invited and must be submitted before Friday 21 October. Winners will receive a certificate and a £50 gift voucher. Second and third place winners will receive a certificate and a £30 and £20 gift voucher respectively.
A prizegiving ceremony with the Mayor and Mayoress will take place in our Civic Offices for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
Councillor John Graham, Mayor of Hertsmere, said: “This is our 16th year running the seasonal card competition and I am so pleased to have the joy of hosting the prizegiving ceremony in person.
“This event is a highlight of the Mayoral Year, and I greatly look forward to seeing all the entries from our budding artists.
“Last year we received an extraordinary volume of entries and I hope to be so lucky to be choosing from as many this year!”
Invitations have been sent to all the primary and junior schools in the borough to encourage participation in the competition.
The winning design will be reproduced by a designer and also replicated on our website and social media channels.
The rules for the competition are:
- Children must be aged 11 or under, and live or go to school in Hertsmere;
- The design should be no more than A4 in size ;
