Shad’s Annual Christmas Card Contest

November has arrived which means…


For the children of Stittsville, this means that my annual Christmas Card decorating contest is now officially underway! Artists up to 12 years old are encouraged enter their beautiful, original Christmas cards. The four winning entries will be included in my online Christmas Greeting for 2017.

This is an exciting chance for an aspiring young artists’ creativity to be seen by hundreds including the Mayor of Ottawa himself, Jim Watson!


Get creative but try to avoid the use of glitter and stickers! And don’t forget your name, age and phone number on the back of your entry.

Entries can be dropped off at my Ward office in the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (1500 Shea Rd) (if my office is closed, don’t fret! Feel free to slide your entry under the door) or mailed to my City Hall address at 110 Laurier Ave W, Ottawa, On K1P 1J1.

Winners and prizes to be presented Dec 2nd at 9:45 am at the GRC during my Christmas Cookie Decorating & Santa Photo Session between 9:00-11:00 AM.

The deadline is November 27th so get those colouring pencils and markers warmed up for this wintery event!
