After receiving over 1,100 entries this year from 19 schools in Nottingham South a winner has been chosen.  We are delighted to say that the winning design was from Nina Mansfield age 5 from Middleton Primary School in Wollaton.  The design caught the judges eye straight away.

As part of her prize Nina and her family will be visiting Lilian at the House of Commons for a tour of the Houses of Parliament and lunch on the terrace overlooking the River Thames. Nina received a £100 voucher courtesy of Nottingham City Transport and 2 tickets to the Theatre Royal Pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Lilian said “This is the seventh year of my Christmas card competition and the standard is as high as ever. Visiting schools across my constituency I meet Nottingham children with incredible imagination and creativity. They’re a real credit to their families, their teachers and their schools and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate the fantastic talent we have in our city.” 

A special thank you to our sponsors this year Nottingham City Transport and Robin Hood Energy for all their help and support with the competition.  Also special thanks to our supporters, East Midlands Trains, Theatre Royal, Toys R Us, Nottingham Panthers, Nottingham Post, Nottingham Contemporary and 4sheets design and print for their continuing support of such a wonderful competition.

Three runners up will also be chosen and their designs will feature on the back of the finished card.  

Lilian said, "I was delighted to visit Greenfields School to launch the competition to design my official Christmas Card for 2016. This is a real community project, giving children in Nottingham South the opportunity to showcase their talents and creativity. I am grateful to my fellow judges for agreeing to help me with the difficult task of picking one winner, and three runners-up. I know we're all looking forward to the entries arriving over the next few weeks.  I hope that lots of schools take up the challenge and get involved."

Simon Rhodes said “Robin Hood Energy are really proud to be involved with the Christmas card competition. It’s great that the local schools could get to see their designs on Lillian's Christmas card for this year. I cannot wait to see what the children come up with!”

Lilian will welcome the winner and family for a day in Parliament . There will also be prizes for the three runners up, a Special Merit award and a ‘Best in school’ prize for each school taking part.  Every child who enters the competition will receive a certificate to thank them for their design.
