Santa checking in with a QR code on the roof of a home he is visiting has proved a winner for 11-year-old COCO MORRISBY.
Her “COVIDSafe” artwork won the 2021 Hawkesbury Mayoral Christmas Card competition and was on the official Christmas Cards sent out by Mayor Patrick Conolly.
Coco, a Year 6 student at Cattai Public School said her thought that “even Santa needs to use a QR reader” was a reflection of everyone’s life during the past year.
Coco said: “It took me two days to design the theme of my card.
“Not long really, as drawing and art are daily hobbies which I enjoy, along with Taekwondo and cycling. It was a huge surprise to win and I’ll be treating my family to some of the goodies which are part of my prize”.
Creativity runs in the family as her mum, Kat, is a hairdresser and her dad, Brad, won an art competition as a student, designing a book cover.
A spokesperson from Hawkesbury Council said the competition was open to all Hawkesbury children aged 5-16 years old.
“We are looking forward to this becoming a must-do activity for all Hawkesbury children over the next few years,” she said.
Suzanne Stuart, Manager, council’s Corporate Communications and Events said: “Coco’s card was fun and colourful, and cleverly captured the unique Christmas we are celebrating this year.”
