A FESTIVE young artist has won a prized Christmas card competition.

Szymon Staniak, who is in year two at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, won the annual card competition set by Sarah Teather, Liberal Democrat MP for Brent Central.

The pupil, who drew a nativity scene, won a £50 book token and his design was printed on to 20,000 Christmas cards which will be delivered to households across Brent.            

As part of his prize, Szymon and his class have also won a guided tour of Wembley Stadium.

 

Each year, the MP invites pupils from all the primary schools in her Brent Central constituency to enter her Christmas card competition.

Ms Teather said: “Picking the winner of the competition is something that I look forward to every year and I’m always extremely impressed with the artistic talent of Brent’s children. The entries are always of a very high quality and this year was no exception. It was wonderful to be able to congratulate Szymon at his school last week, and thousands of people across Brent will be receiving a card with his beautiful design on it very soon.”
