The winner of my annual Christmas Card Competition 2014 is Jasmin Whitehouse, aged 9, from Fernwood Junior School in Wollaton. Her design was chosen from 1,049 entries from 18 schools in Nottingham South. Jasmin's design for the card was fabulous, and really reflected the theme for the year, which was commemorative events. I am proud that Jasmin's design was the overall winner this year, and I look forward to welcoming her and her family to Parliament in the new year.

An exhibition of all the winners will be displayed in the Nottingham Central Library from 16th December to 31st December.
