Teenager wins card contest

Have your say

Student Robert Crowther’s work has been featured on Barnsley College’s official Christmas card after he won a competition to find the best festive design.

Graphic design apprentice Robert’s red tree and bauble design was named winner of the student competition, earning him £50 in high street vouchers and the prestige of seeing his work sent out to hundreds of college contacts.

This year, for the first time, Barnsley College has sent an email version of its Christmas greeting, rather than the traditional paper copy.

Robert, aged 18 of Hoyland, said: “I’m really pleased to have won the competition. This was an excellent opportunity to showcase my skills and will help me in my ambition to become a designer.”
