A Christmas scene featuring the Titan Crane which was created by a Clydebank youngster has been chosen as the winner of the Provost’s 2019 Christmas card competition.
Sophie Kidd’s design was picked out by Provost William Hendrie and will now feature on his official Christmas card, to be sent out to more than 300 individuals and organisations across West Dunbartonshire and beyond.
Every year the Provost selects one school from West Dunbartonshire to take part in the Christmas card competition and this year it was the turn of Clydemuir Primary.
Sophie, who is in Primary 6 at the school, was the overall winner, while designs by Archie Myall and Mirren McReynolds came second and third.
All three of their names will be displayed on the winning Christmas card in recognition of their efforts.
The three finalists met with Provost Hendrie this week, where he was able to congratulate them in person.
As winner, Sophie received a framed copy of her design, a gift voucher for £30 and an engraved snowman Christmas tree decoration.
The two runners up received a £25 gift voucher and an engraved snowman Christmas tree decoration.
Provost Hendrie said, "Each year, we receive fantastic designs from our primary school students, and every year it gets harder to pick a winner.
“I picked Sophie's design as the overall winner because it stuck out, with the local feature of the Titan Crane and the festive Santa travelling across the night sky.
"It’s important for our students to have a creative outlet and I’d like to thank the teachers who nurture this talent. Congratulations to our winners and to everyone who took part.”
