The young winner of a drawing competition run earlier this year in the Advertizer was delighted to see her winning design transformed into Christmas cards.


The competition, organised by Principality Oswestry Agency, was aimed at children aged up to 12 years old and invited them to draw a picture of Dylan the Dragon – the building society’s fiery mascot.


The competition was held as part of a celebration for Principality Oswestry Agency having been established in the town for three years and more than 100 entries were submitted.


The first prize winner was Keira Evans (9) from Morda, for her picture of Dylan with Agency manager Kim Morris. Kiera won a family day pass to Park Hall Farm and £50 for her building society account, in addition to her design featuring on the business’ Christmas cards.


Principality manager Kim Morris said: “I am delighted to welcome Kiera back to show her what her design looks like in print.  Her card design will be sent out to over 1,000 homes and businesses around Oswestry.”


Business owner, Kate Howell presented Keira with a Christmas hamper and her original picture in a frame.  She added: “We were so impressed with Kiera’s picture, it really stood out amongst some other very good entries.  Not only is Keira a fantastic artist, she’s also become one of our best young savers since winning her £50 prize money and we look forward to seeing her each month when she comes in to deposit her pocket money.”
