For the fifth year in a row Nicola has hosted a Christmas Card competition, inviting youngsters from local schools to design a card to be sent out to hundreds of local businesses, schools, community organisations and fellow MPs and Westminster colleagues.
This year Nicola received hundreds entries from schools across her constituency and chose a winner from each school for a local printing company to make into cards for Nicola to post out to friends and colleagues – including the Prime Minister!
As always, judging the competition was very tough. With so many beautiful drawings and so much creativity choosing just one winner from each school felt almost impossible! In the end, she managed it though and Nicola has thanked all schools for taking part, and soon the winners will not only see their cards sent out across the county but will also be coming to Parliament for a tour and treats with Nicola.
The winners are:
Nicola says: Its safe to say we have incredibly creative children in our Oxford West & Abingdon schools. I am always struck by the imagination of the children taking part and try to pick a range of ideas for the final designs that really gives a flavour of quite how talented our budding artists are so that everyone else can enjoy I know everyone will be just as impressed as I was when they receive the cards their cards this year.
