Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, has announced the winner of her 2017 Christmas card competition.
Earlier this year Amanda invited local school children to design the cover of her official 2017 Christmas card, with the winning design featuring on the front of her card and two runners up on the back. Amanda received hundreds of entries making it very difficult to choose the winner and runners up.
Amanda said: "It was exceptionally difficult to choose the winner, with all the entries being very good. I am delighted to announce that Livia Bentley, aged 10, from St Luke's Primary School, was the winner and her design now features on the front of my Christmas card. I am sure everyone will agree that this design is fantastic and particularly suited to Cannock Chase!"
The two runners up were Phoebe Ryder, Aged 10 from West Hill Primary School, and Harvey Watson, Aged 10 from Churchfields C.E. Primary Academy. full list of results are:
1st Place – Livia Bentley - aged 10, from St Luke's C of E Primary School.
2nd Place – Phoebe Ryder - aged 10 from West Hill Primary School.
3rd Place – Harvey Watson - aged 10 from Churchfields C.E. Primary Academy.
St Luke's C of E Primary School also submitted the winning design in 2016 and now a pupil of the school has won the competition two years in a row. West Hill Primary School also has a runner up for the second consecutive year.
Amanda added: "Both of the runners-ups were great designs and it was very hard to choose the winner. I would like to thank the hundreds of local school children who took part in the competition, all the designs were brilliant.”
