PCVC Ron Hogg and winner Maddi
A Whinfield Primary School student from Darlington has been picked as the winner of a Christmas Card competition.
Ten year old Maddi Dinsdale won the competition organised by Ron Hogg, Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner (PCVC) for County Durham and Darlington. Over 700 entries were received for this year’s competition, with some schools submitting entries from every pupil.
Ron said: "Congratulations to Maddi for her creative design. With so many excellent entries it was hard to pick a winner, but Maddi’s design captured this year’s theme of ‘Staying Safe on Winter Nights' perfectly. It really showed that she had thought about the environment and how to stay safe.”
Ron decided to use Maddi’s winning design as the picture on his official PCVC Christmas card. The card will be sent to friends and colleagues throughout the country.
Ron surprised Maddi with a medal, certificate, gift voucher and a pack of Christmas cards showing her winning design, during her school assembly on Monday 13th November 2017.
Ron also surprised two runners up Jon-Jay Moralee (age 4) and Khloe O’Neil (age 8) with medals and certificates in their assembly at Copeland Road Primary School, West Auckland on Friday 17th November 2017.
Ron said: "A big thank you to all those who took part across County Durham and Darlington, and to parents, teachers and community group leaders for encouraging the children to get involved.”
