CHILDREN'S ART WEEK Meet our Winners!
THANK YOU, THANK, YOU, THANK YOU
This July I asked young people all over the world to join me for Children's Art Week by either colouring in my Cow drawing or drawing their very own Cow. I couldn't believe the sheer amount of entries we had! My inbox was filled with amazing colourful cows! spotty Cows, stripey Cows, Cows in charcoal, Cows in paint, Cows with glitter, Cows with hats even cows with piercings!
Myself and fellow judges, Sara from Cash for Kids and Stuart, Deputy President of the National Farmers Union, had such a hard job picking our winners. After much deliberation we have selected our winners and runners up, based on creativity, artistry and 'smile factor'.
Our winning designs will be printed and sold as cards to raise money for fantastic children's charity Cash For Kids.
