School kids invited to get arty

Primary school children who live in the Shire of Mundaring and City of Swan are invited to get creative through the annual Mundaring Arts Centre (MAC) Environmental Art Project, which is now open.

The competition is supported by the Shire of Mundaring, and this year's theme Clean Energy encourages students to explore different ways to reduce their energy impact on the local environment.

The project provides students with creative opportunities to think positively and enhance their awareness of environmental issues within the Shire of Mundaring.

To participate, students must create an artwork or design on A4 paper (portrait only) based on the topic Clean Energy – Let's Reduce our Energy Impact by researching and watching the free videos and resources on the MAC website.

Competition entries are limited to one per student, and this year participants are able to take part in-class (via their school) or online.

There will be 16, $80 prizes in lower and upper primary categories, with award winners receiving a $70 prize for their school to help purchase environmental education resources.   

Highly acclaimed book prizes are also up for grabs and students with winning entries may have the opportunity to display their work on a banner within the Shire of Mundaring.

Entries must be submitted to MAC by 5pm on Friday 21 August.
