Michael invited all primary, junior, infant and special school children in Barnsley East to enter the competition and the best design will be used as his official 2010 Christmas card. 

Over thirty schools were invited to take part and the best judged card from each school won a prize as well as being entered into the shortlist for the overall winner. (Michael pictured here on the right with the winners at St Michael and All Angels Catholic Primary School, Paulina Stawnicka, Emily Beasley and Chloe Cowling). 
  
The competition was judged by Mr Dugher, the Mayor of Barnsley and the sponsors of the card.

The winning design will be sent to the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown as well as hundreds of other politicians, local businesses and voluntary groups. 

Michael said: “This is the first year I’ve run the competition so I’m really pleased with the amount of interest and the number of schools that have taken part.  I happy that the competition has enabled pupils to have fun and come up with some fantastic, original and creative designs.  It is great opportunity to showcase the creative talent of children from Barnsley and I’m really looking forward to announcing the overall winner of the competition at the High View Primary Learning Centre on Friday 17th December.”

The competition is being supported by three excellent local companies: Carlton Brick, Lo’s Pharmacy and Symphony.  Carlton Brick, based in Grimethorpe, is South Yorkshire's sole remaining brick factory.  Lo’s Pharmacy operates 16 pharmacies in the Yorkshire region and Symphony is the UK’s largest privately owned manufacturer of fitted kitchen, bedroom and bathroom furniture.
