Primary school pupils from all over Wales are once again being invited to enter a Christmas card design competition organised by the Farmers' Union of Wales.
The union is asking children aged from four to 11 to design a Christmas scene depicting a farming theme for its Christmas cards which will be sold to raise money for the FUW's chosen charitable causes - Cardiff-based Tŷ Hafan and Hope House Children's Hospices of Oswestry which includes Tŷ Gobaith at Conwy.
FUW president Emyr Jones said: "The competition will be judged in both Welsh language and English language categories. Children can use crayons, coloured pencils, felt tipped pens or paint in their entries which must be completed on an A4 sheet of paper.
"The only stipulation is that it must be a Christmas card with a farming theme. The competition was a huge success last year and we hope we can once again count on the support of our local 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 2013 Royal Welsh Winter Fair to receive their prizes and a £50 cheque for their school.
The winning entries, together with a selection of other entries, will be displayed at the FUW stand during the Winter Fair (December 2-3).
The closing date for entries is Friday October 25.
The pupil's name, class number, school name and home address must be included on all entries which should be posted or delivered to the FUW, Llys Amaeth, Plas Gogerddan, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, SY23 3BT, marked "Schools Competition", or e-mailed to email@example.com
