Threatened Species Art & Writing Competition

Children can now submit their creative artwork or short story in the annual Threatened Species Art and Writing Competition.

The competition celebrates National Threatened Species Day on Monday 7 September and is open to children aged five to 12 from the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly areas.

Artworks and creative writing pieces must feature a local endangered, rare or vulnerable plant or animal.

Mayor George Brticevic said the Macarthur region is home to a spectacular variety of amazing native plants and animals and the competition encourages students to learn about them.

“It’s important that we educate the next generation about the threats facing our wonderfully diverse flora and fauna so that we can take meaningful actions to protect them,” Cr Brticevic said.

“There are many talented kids across the Macarthur region with a flair for art and writing and it’s always great to see the quality of works entered in this competition each year,” he said.

Winning entries will be posted on council’s social media pages in September and will contribute towards a Threatened Species storybook available through Council libraries or to download from the website.

Entries close on Friday 27 August.

Teachers and parents can also access a resource kit to help them deliver the competition in classrooms.
