Kids urged to enter comp
Winton Wetlands is welcoming artwork submissions from children of primary-school age for Winton Wetlands’ 2019 Calendar.
The 12 winning artists will receive a $100 voucher and will be judged on their use of colours, creativity, good technical skills, use of space and a good accompanying story.
All funds raised from the sale of next year’s calendar will go towards the Friends of Winton Wetlands restoration work.
‘‘The calendar will help raise essential funds to continue with projects, such as tree planting, monitoring and protection of turtles, frogs and other species,’’ Friends of Winton Wet- lands president Roberts said.
‘‘For an added challenge, the artwork will need to address one of the following ecological themes — birds, wildlife, pest animals, insects, habitat or threatened and endangered species.
‘‘These themes are Matt really relevant to Winton Wetlands as our ongoing restoration supports environmental balance and includes food webs, which encompass everything from insects to predator species.’’
