Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Staff re­porter

James Kelly MSP is call­ing on pri­mary six pupils in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang to show off their artis­tic side by de­sign­ing his 2016 par­lia­men­tary Christ­mas card.

James re­cently wrote to all head teaches in the area invit­ing schools to take part.

One win­ning de­sign will be se­lected by a judg­ing panel and will be pro­fes­sion­ally printed and dis­trib­uted to al­most 3000 peo­ple in the con­stituency. In ad­di­tion, a sec­ond and third placed de­sign will also be se­lected and this will be printed on the card. The judg­ing panel will also se­lect sev­eral run­ner up de­signs.

A prize giv­ing cer­e­mony will be ar­ranged in early De­cem­ber for first, sec­ond and third placed de­signs, with James vis­it­ing schools in De­cem­ber to present cer­tifi­cates and prizes.

The com­pe­ti­tion closes on Oc­to­ber 19 and is open to all pri­mary six pupils in the con­stituency. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the com­pe­ti­tion con­tact the con­stituency of­fice on 0141 647 0707.

James said: “Last year sev­eral lo­cal schools took part and we had the dif­fi­cult task of choos­ing a win­ner from hun­dreds of en­tries. This com­pe­ti­tion is an ideal op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal chil­dren to dis­play their artis­tic tal­ents and show them off to the com­mu­nity.”
