Avon Valley Gazette - - SPORT -

PRI­MARY school stu­dents are vy­ing for a chance to have their Naidoc bill­board de­sign fea­tured at Swan Dis­tricts head­quar­ters for a year.

In­dige­nous AFLW Fre­man­tle and Swan Dis­tricts women play­ers Gemma Houghton and Emily McGuire launched the com­pe­ti­tion, which fo­cused on the 2018 Naidoc theme of ‘ Be­cause of Her, We can’, at Swan View and St Michael’s pri­mary schools last month.

The win­ner will have their de­sign dis­played at Bassendean Oval on a bill­board from Naidoc round on July 7 un­til Naidoc round in 2019.

The theme cel­e­brated the role of In­dige­nous women and to recog­nise the con­tri­bu­tions In­dige­nous peo­ple made to so­ci­ety.

Houghton said young stu­dents had the power to do and be any­thing they wanted to be and en­cour­aged them to pur­sue their goals.

McGuire said it was amaz­ing to see the amount of in­ter­est shared among the stu­dents who lis­tened to her jour­ney.

The com­pe­ti­tion ends to­day.

Swan View PS stu­dent Roze Munro, Fre­man­tle player Emily McGuire, Betty Moore, Ke­tu­rah Clinch, V Swans com­mu­nity man­ager Shane Beros, Uriah Lane and Nazareth Jones.
