2019 Leichhardt Christmas Card competition open to entrants



Last updated:

Kids across Far North Queensand are being urged to pick up their pencils and show different ways of “Showcasing our Reef” for the 2019 Leichhardt Christmas Card competition.

Now in its tenth year, the competition is open to all children in Leichhardt aged from 5 to 12 years inclusive.

The winning illustrations will feature on Federal Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch’s annual Christmas card, distributed to his parliamentary colleagues and contacts across Far North Queensland.

“Each year I really look forward to seeing what our local students come up with,” Mr Entsch said.

“I receive hundreds of entries each year from children all across Far North Queensland, using a range of items such as glitter and glue, crayons, pencils, collage and scrapbooking to express their creativity.

“So for this year’s Christmas Card Competition, I would love for kids to show the different ways of “Showcasing our Reef.”

All schools will receive the application forms and conditions of entry this week so that students can start designing their entries.

The competition will close at on Friday, 8 November at 5.00pm and entry forms can also be collected from Mr Entsch’s office at 200 Mulgrave Road, Cairns.

All entries should be dropped off at Mr Entsch’s office or posted to PO Box 14, Bungalow, Queensland, 4870.

To be eligible for consideration for a prize they must be the original entry, on theme, in a horizontal A4 format, with a completed application form attached.

All entrants will receive a personalised Certificate of Appreciation.

Mr Entsch again thanked Cairns Penny for its ongoing sponsoring of the competition.
