A pupil from Eastburn Junior and Infant School was one of three winners in a Christmas card design contest.

Melissa Elsworth, a year six pupil, came up with a design featuring six snowmen.

Bradford-based firm Hallmark Cards produced cards portraying the image, which were used as official Bradford Council seasonal greetings cards.

Melissa was one of more than 20 children from her school who took part in the Winter Wonder 2012 competition, arranged by the council.

The contest received about 800 entries from across Bradford district.

The young entrants were asked to represent the ‘Winter Wonder’ theme using either drawing, painting, photography or collage.

Melissa went to Future House, Bradford, last Wednesday to be presented with a certificate in recognition of her eye-catching artistic effort. Her prize also included a desk easel and a set of acrylic paints.
