The children of the Dubbo electorate unleashed their creativity in this year's Christmas card design competition, according to Member for the Dubbo Electorate Dugald Saunders.
Each year Mr Saunders calls for primary-school children across the electorate to help design his Christmas card, and this year 12-year-old Aaron Devenish has brought the title back to Mudgee Public School.
Aaron's design features a ute packed to the brim with presents, zooming off on a holiday, which Mr Saunders said really captured the excitement we are feeling as Christmas approaches.
Hot on Aaron's heels was 10-year-old Zeon Berger from St Mary's Primary School in Dubbo, and nine-year-old Emily Lucan from Orana Heights Public School.
"This year saw a record number of entries with the theme 'Let Loose from Lockdown' - and the kids certainly let loose their creativity," Mr Saunders said.
"The last couple of years have been really challenging for everyone - especially our kids - so this Christmas it's time to party."
Aaron's Christmas card design will start arriving in mailboxes across the Dubbo electorate this week.
COVID restrictions are set to ease on December 15. Already more than 94 per cent of people aged 16 and over in NSW have had one COVID vaccination, while more than 92 per cent of people are fully vaccinated.
"We're committed to making sure everyone can enjoy a safe and Merry Christmas," Mr Saunders said.
