Para Vista Primary School student, Sophia Ivanica, aged 8, has taken out honours in the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant Mini-Float Design Competition, beating more than 250 other designs from schools around South Australia. See her design here.
The Credit Union Christmas Pageant called upon creative students to enter a world of fun, fantasy and fairy tales, all with a Christmas theme.
South Australian school students aged 5-14 years old were invited to take part in the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant Design a Mini Float Competition.
First introduced in 2007, the Design a Mini-Float Competition was open to individual students and class entries. In 2015, the competition attracted over 400 entries!

The winner of this competition will not only take home the honour of having designed a float for the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant. They’ll also win great prizes and money-can’t-buy experiences, thanks to our sponsoring Credit Unions.
In addition, the winning design will be built by the elves at Stardust Castle for debut in the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant on 18 November.
