FUW encourages children to submit farming Christmas card design in aid of charity

Primary school pupils from all over Wales are being invited to enter a Christmas card design themed around farming for the Farmers Union of Wales (FUW) Christmas card competition.

The FUW is asking children aged from four to 11 to design a Christmas farming scene for its Christmas cards, which will be sold to raise money for the Union’s charity The DPJ Foundation.

FUW president Glyn Roberts said: “The competition will be split into Welsh language and English language categories.

Children can use any media in their entries, such as crayons, coloured pencils, felt tipped pens or paint which must be completed on an A4 sheet of paper and emailed to us in jpeg format.

“The only stipulation is that it must be a Christmas card showing a farming scene.”

“The competition has been a huge success in the past and we hope we can once again count on the support of our primary schools all over Wales.”

The winner of each category will receive a £30 gift voucher for themselves, a packet of the Christmas cards depicting their design, one day’s free admittance to the 2021 Royal Welsh Winter Fair to receive their prizes and a £50 cheque for their school.

The closing date for entries is Friday, October 29, 2021.
