Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has launched her annual Christmas card competition for the island’s under 18s.
Virginia is looking for a card that shows the hope for the next year with a little bit of Christmas Anglesey magic thrown in.
The winning design, as well as second and third place, will all feature on the card and it will be sent to the Prime Minister Boris Johnson and other public figures in government and beyond.
“I was blown away by the standard of the entries last year and the winning one by Lara from Ysgol y Tywyn was really special,” said Virginia.
“This year I would like children to harness their artistic talents to design a card that is both fit to grace the mantelpiece of 10 Downing Street but also unmistakably from our wonderful island.
“Good luck to all those who enter and I am really looking forward to seeing the designs coming in over the next few weeks.”
Virginia explained that children can enter individually or via their school or youth organisation. She hopes the competition could be used as a classroom project.
The winner will receive a £20 book token and second and third places £10 tokens.
Printing and sending the cards will be at no cost to the taxpayer as local Anglesey businesses have generously come forward to sponsor it.
Entries must be received by October 14that the latest and the winners will be announced on October 31st.
