Youngsters were rewarded for dreaming-up festive creations fit for a mayor.
Five pupils travelled to Swale council’s Sittingbourne HQ in East Street to receive book vouchers and certificates.
The children, from Kemsley and Queenborough primary schools, were winners in a competition to create a Christmas card.
The chosen designs will appear on the front cover of this year’s Mayoral Civic card.
Five-year-old Erin Thomas, a Year 1 pupil at Queenborough, was among the successful quintet.
Her picture of a mummy and baby reindeer was selected by the council’s director of regeneration, Pete Raine.
Vida Montrimaite, head of art at the Edward Road school, said: “Mr Raine was impressed that the card was designed by someone only five years old.
“It’s a very good piece of work and very cute.”
The children will also be given their own copies of the card to send to family and friends.
