'What Christmas Means to Me'

29/11/2017

An artistic youngster from South Wales who scooped the top prize in a competition to design a Christmas card for the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, has seen her winning design in print and on sale. 

Eleven year old Eva Lornie’s artwork of ‘What Christmas Means to Me’ was launched as the Society’s official Christmas card this week at the Winter Fair.

Eva, a former pupil at Mount Street Junior School, Brecon now attends Brecon High School.  She was presented with a framed certificate of her winning artwork at the official opening of the Winter Fair at the International Pavilion on the Showground in Builth Wells.

Eva’s winning design was judged overall winner in this year’s Children’s Art and Design competition which we sponsored. She received a cash prize of £30 plus £100 for her school.

The competition itself attracted hundreds of young artists from schools right across Wales. Pupils were invited to use their skill and imagination to design a painting or drawing illustrating ‘What Christmas Means to Me’.

Once again this year Mount Street Junior School swept the board by winning seven out of  the fourteen prizes that were up for grabs in the Competition, the school itself managed to win £200 overall, with two of the pupils gaining a first prize in their age groups.
