School pupils across Wiltshire and Dorset are being given a chance to submit two types of design for a thank-you card to HM the Queen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.

Schools Compete to Say Thank-You *Updated

Pupils will design the cover of the Queen's Big Thank You Card

The Diocesan Board of Education are sending details to Headteachers and parents regarding two types of design: one for inside the card and one for the cover.

Pupils can use pencils, crayons, pens or computer graphics and choose designs according to what they decide is appropriate.

The Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam, will judge the cover competition. The winner will meet the Bishop and help cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony for the new Diocesan Education Centre in Wilton.

The Diocesan Director of Education, Chris Shepperd, said, "What better way to say thank-you than with a cheerful design? Our children are encouraged to think carefully and produce bright, colourful artwork as only children and young people can."

He added, "We expect a high standard. Chosing the final cover will not be an easy task!"


Entry format for inside the card: 1/4-A4, portrait or landscape
Entry format for the cover: A4, portrait or landscape
