Recently Member for Morwell, Russell Northe gave local primary schools in the Morwell electorate the opportunity to enter a completion to design his Christmas cards.
“This year we had asked local primary schools if they would like to help with the design of four different Christmas Cards” said Mr Northe.
“I was thrilled that hundreds of local students took the time to submit their designs and I thank each student for doing so” Mr Northe added.
Mr Northe challenged Andrea Ramsay and Nola Matthews from the Traralgon & District Art Society to select the final four designs which was an enormous effort given the quality of works submitted.
“A big thank you to Andrea and Nola for doing so!!!” Mr Northe said.
Following substantial consideration, the four winning Christmas Card designs were submitted by Maisy Wilson (Grey Street Primary School, Traralgon), Shanalee Carmody (Newborough Primary School), Lucy Booth (Churchill Primary School) and Olivia Atherton (Lumen Christi Primary School, Churchill).
“A big well done and congratulations to Maisy, Shanalee, Lucy and Olivia for your amazing and colourful designs!!” said Mr Northe
Mr Northe would like to again thank all schools and students who participated and looks forward to running the competition again next year.
