Announcing the Winner of MP Eglinski’s 2017 Christmas Card Contest
November 24, 2017
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to announce the winner of his 2nd annual Christmas Card Design Contest. This year, his Ottawa office received an abundance of submissions from all across the riding.
Usually, Parliamentarian Christmas cards display the family of the Parliamentarian and/or an Ottawa scene. However, given that there are many talented young individuals within the Yellowhead riding, MP Eglinski prefers to take this opportunity to recognize one of these artists.
Miss Miranda Walker, a grade six student from Gerard Redmond Community Catholic School in Hinton, designed the cover of MP Eglinski’s Christmas card this year. Her artwork depicts a colorful display of lights dangling on garland and holly, with ornaments decorated by the Rocky Mountains and reindeer.
“We have so many talented young artists in our riding! Each year it is becoming more and more difficult to decide which one to choose,” said MP Eglinski.
“Thank you to all those who participated, and I look forward to seeing what creative ideas our students come up with next year!” concluded MP Eglinski.
