This year Evergreen Healthfoods are running a Christmas Art Competition with a difference. The company, who in previous years have run colouring competitions at Christmas, are this year looking to encourage creativity and the use of recycled materials by asking children to design their own Christmas cards.
The competition, which is kindly sponsored by Viridian Nutrition wants to show children what can be done with recycled materials. They are encouraging children to dig out last year’s Christmas cards, wrapping paper, newspapers, or other materials to create a unique Christmas card. You can be as creative as you like.
You must be under 13 to enter, and there are three different age categories being judged – under 6, under 9, and under 13. Prizes include art packs and childrens’ multivitamins, and the closing date for entries is Friday, 17th December.
If you would like to enter this competition, all you have to do is design your own Christmas card and drop it into any of the five Evergreen stores across Galway. These are located at the Galway Shopping Centre, Westside Shopping Centre, Mainguard St. in the city centre, Barna and Moycullen. Be sure to put your name, age and contact details on the back of the card.
