Design a Birthday Card Competition

One of my favourite things to do is sign birthday cards for local residents celebrating their milestone birthdays.

In my years representing our community, many of our local primary schools provided Happy Birthday artwork to my office which we printed on cards and then sent to our local seniors. Since sending out these birthday cards I have received many phone calls, cards, handwritten letters and emails from seniors in our community who have greatly appreciated the artwork of our primary school students. 

I am inviting all local primary school students to submit drawings that would suit a birthday card!

I love seeing our youngest Ashwood District residents artwork on these birthday cards, which will be sent out to some of our eldest!

The lucky winners will receive their designs printed on a birthday card!
