The card must show why #Farmingmatters

Primary school pupils from all over Wales are being invited to enter a Christmas card design themed #FarmingMatters for the Farmers’ Union of Wales annual Christmas card competition.
The FUW is asking children aged from four to 11 to design a Christmas scene showing why #FarmingMatters for its Christmas cards, which will be sold to raise money for the Union’s charity British Heart Foundation Cymru.
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.
"The only stipulation is that it must be a Christmas card showing why #FarmingMatters.
"The competition was a huge success last year 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 2016 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 (November 28-29).
The closing date for entries is Friday November 11.
The pupil’s name, age, 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 anne.birkett@fuw.org.uk
