Advent Competition Winners Announced
We have now chosen the winners for our annual children's competition. This year the task was to design the cover for an Advent Calendar.
Entries were invited from children's groups, senior and primary schools. As ever, there were lots of fantastic designs. Scroll down to see the winners in the schools and church categories.
The winners and runners up have been informed and will receive their prizes over the next few days. Each winner received a cheque for £150 for their school or group while each runner up got a cheque for £50. All of the winners and runners up also received a box of our Host of Angels Christmas decorations and a box of our Fairtrade crackers.
First Prize Senior
The winning senior school entry from Loreto, Altrincham, is a colourful manger scene. The composition is excellent as it shows that all of the focus is on the baby Jesus.
First Prize Primary School
The winning primary school entry from Our Lady and St. George's, Walthamstow, is a colourful and joyful picture. Everyone is clearly so happy that Jesus has been born.
First Prize Church Group
The winning entry from Penicuik North Kirk shows the appearance of the angels to the shepherds in deep and rich colours.
Runner Up Senior
This entry from St Wilfrid's, Blackburn, shows the arrival of the wise men, following a star which points down at the place of Jesus' birth.
Runner Up Primary School
This entry from St Mary's, Old Basing, is a colourful crib scene which shows the delight of Mary and Joseph at the birth of Jesus.
Runner Up Church Group
This entry from Droitwich Messy Church is full of character and action. The whole range of nativity characters are present in this illustration of that first Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Advent competition. Keep an eye out in the New Year for our Real Easter Egg competition. Until then, all at The Meaningful Chocolate Company wish you a very merry Christmas.
