Christmas card competition 2021

CSSC is inviting Key Stage 2 pupils (Primary 5 -7) from controlled primary schools to design a Christmas themed greetings card.

We would like to ask pupils to create a card that reflects the meaning of Christmas.

Please send your entries via email to by 5pm on Monday 6 December 2021. You should include the name of the school, name of the pupil that has designed each individual card, and your contact details. Do note that we may need the winning original cards for printing.

There will be prizes for one winner and one runner up.

Process and photography tips:

·        Draw on an A4 sheet (for scanning purposes and please don’t use glitter).

·        Teachers/Parents/Guardians please photograph the artwork on their phones at the highest setting possible.

·        Try to take as square on as possible filling the frame without cutting any edges off the artwork, ensure the lighting is bright.

·        Please be careful if using flash as it may have detrimental impact on picture quality.

Please do not hesitate to contact Colleen Murray, Marketing and Communications Officer, on 028 9531 3047 or email if you have any further queries regarding the competition.
