Christmas Card Art Submissions from the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula

160 entries from Kindergarten to Grade 6 students from The Straits-White Bay North were submitted for the annual Christmas Card contest. There is amazing artwork that should be publicly displayed and recognized. I encourage you all to take a look at the incredible creativity shown by children ages 5-11 on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula.

All entries are posted in the Public Art Gallery at 279 West Street, but to make them more accessible we decided to showcase them on-line.

Rural Newfoundland & Labrador has many traditions and talents. It is always nice to stop for a moment and look at life in the lens of a child. These students should be proud of their entries and I encourage them to continue to be involved and hope to reach more schools and student entries. Youth engagement matters!

Merry Christmas,

Christopher Mitchelmore, MHA for The Straits-White Bay North
