"Over the years we have had so many amazing entries in this competition and I'm excited to see what the students come up with this year.

"I encourage all schools across the electorate to participate and to take this opportunity to share a moment that will make them smile."

The entries will be displayed on the front window of Mr Barilaro's office, while the winning designs will feature on the front of his official Christmas card which is sent to hundreds of organisations and individuals across the region.
