Iona said: “I entered the competition because I love drawing and it was a fabulous chance to go to the glorious winter wonderland, Lapland for the first time. I was really excited about being a runner up as there were 2,000 entries and I came in the top 10! I will probably spend the gift vouchers on books because it is my favourite thing to do in my spare time."
Open to all children aged between five and ten years old, the competition sought a design for the RCN corporate Christmas card for 2016 – the College’s centenary year.The card is sent to all the people and organisations who work with the RCN to support the nursing profession.
Estephanie Dunn, Regional Director of RCN North West, said: “This is a very special year for the RCN and hundreds of children from across the UK joined us in our centenary celebrations. We’re thrilled that Iona’s wonderful design has represented the North West in our online gallery.”
