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.’’

●must pro­vide their full name, age, school name and grade and a par­ent/ guardian’s con­tact phone num­ber. Art­work should be land­scape, A4 size and ac­com­pa­nied by 25 words or less.
