With Christmas fast approaching, The Lexicon has today launched its annual Christmas art competition which has been running for the past five years! The competition offers local children aged 3-12 years a unique chance to be part of the town centre’s Christmas activity.

Children can get involved by creating and decorating a Christmas Snowflake design, using crayons, felt-tip pens, paints or even a computer, using the templates provided. 

Although we appreciate that snowflakes are white, for this competition we are looking for brightly coloured snowflakes – in fact the brighter the better.  The design (there is a choice of four snowflake templates) must be the child’s own work and should be something that will appeal to all age groups.

The winning designs will form part of a Christmas Snowflake Trail, located in retailer windows in the town centre.  

  • The overall winner will receive a gift voucher the value of £50 and a Giotto Stilnovo pen and pencil box of 90.
  • The runner-up will receive a gift voucher to the value of £25 voucher and a Giotto Stilnovo pen and pencil box of 90.
  • In addition, both winners will also receive Giotto art products worth £200 for their school. 
  • Eight other shortlisted winners will also receive a gift voucher worth £10 each.

Closing date for entries is Sunday, November 13 2022.
