As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 15th December, Stephanie recently announced the winner of her Christmas card design competition.
Open to all primary schools in the Barnsley East constituency, the competition gave them the chance to design the local MP’s Christmas card.
With the help of her judging panel, including the Mayor of Barnsley Cllr Jeff Ennis, and representatives from the competition sponsors, Stephanie decided on hundreds of entries from over seven local primary schools.
She announced the overall winner as Harvey Bailey, aged 10, from West Meadows Primary School, along with an overall 2nd and 3rd place, and a winner and two runners up from each school.
The winner was awarded his prize by the MP on Friday, and Harvey’s design has now be made into a card to be sent on to hundreds of politicians, civic leaders, businesses and volunteer groups.
Commenting, Stephanie said:
“I was delighted to see so many pupils across Barnsley East’s primary schools enter my annual Christmas card competition.
“Their designs were fantastic and a real testament to the creative talents of young people here.
“Although there could only be a few winners, I enjoyed looking at every design and all those who entered should be extremely proud of their attempts.
“The overall winner can now look forward to having his card design sent to politicians, businesses and organisations right across the country.”
