Attention all parents and teachers: it’s only autumn, with Halloween just around the corner, but planning for Christmas is already underway at City Hall!
On behalf of the City of Port Colborne, Mayor Bill Steele is inviting the children of our community to help design the city’s 2019 Christmas card.
The theme: “Christmas in Port Colborne.”
The mayor seeks an image that conveys the Christmas spirit with special focus on a Port Colborne person, place or thing.
Submissions may be painted with fingers or brushes, or drawn with pencils, crayons, pastels, or markers on a standard white sheet of paper, 8 ½” X 11” in vertical or horizontal format. Remember that deep, dark colours produce a better illustration.
The contest is open to all children who live or go to school in Port Colborne; up to and including those in Grade 8.
Time is of the essence: to be chosen and reproduced for printing in time for the holiday season, all submissions must be received at the Mayor’s Office in City Hall, 66 Charlotte St., Port Colborne ON L3K 3G8 by Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 at 4 p.m.
Please include the child’s name, address, and telephone number on the back of the artwork.
