Hull City Council Leader, Councillor Mike Ross and Chief Executive, Matt Jukes, have picked the winning design for the Council’s e-Christmas card, following judging 147 entries from primary school pupils across the city.
Sheneli Matiwala Kumbura Mudunkoth Gedara, age 11, from Estcourt Primary Academy submitted the winning design. Her design will be sent to hundreds of people and businesses, giving Christmas wishes.
Jacqueline Hammond, age 11, from Estcourt Primary Academy was the runner-up, and Isabella Stark, age 10, from Sutton Park came in third place. All three pupils will receive gift vouchers.
Councillor Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council said: “Firstly, a big thank you to all those who entered the competition. I’m delighted we had so many fantastic designs and hope the children had lots of fun doing them.”
“We decided this year’s theme should be ‘Together at Christmas’ and for pupils to show what Christmas means to them. We felt Sheneli’s design stood out with a brilliant image of Hull City Hall, a landmark building in the city. I am sure those who get the e-card this year will appreciate Sheneli’s efforts as much as we did.”
