Design a card in our Christmas competition
11:57am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
TODAY we launch our fantastic competition for children to design their own Christmas cards.
Last year, thousands of youngsters from across Bolton sent in their excellent designs of everything from snowmen to Christmas trees and presents.
As well as fabulous prizes, the winners will have their cards professionally printed and they will be able to send them to family and friends, making them an extra special gift for Christmas.
Whether it is a festive winter scene, with robins and snowmen, or brightly coloured Santas with reindeer, we want to see your wonderful designs.
The competition is open to children aged four to 11.
To enter, all you need to do is draw a design for the front of your card using this template: DesignACardTemplate.pdf, or ask for one from your school.
Your card can be made using paints, coloured pencils or felt-tip pens.
Once you have finished your card, fill in the details on the form and send it to Design a Christmas Card Competition, Editorial Dep-artment, The Bolton News, The Wellsprings, Civic Centre, Bolton, BL1 1AR by October 24.
A selection of the best cards will be printed in a special supplement on November 14 when readers will be able to vote for their favourite designs by text or by phone.
Usual Newsquest rules apply, which can be viewed online at theboltonnews.
co.uk/terms. The votes will then be counted and the winner and runners-up will be announced at the end of November, with the cards printed at the start of December.
The winners in each category — aged four to seven and eight to 11 — will be the designs with most votes. The winners will be printed by Impression (Bolton) Limited, in Manchester Road, Bolton.
