Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS -

HAR­VEY Shire Coun­cil will par­tic­i­pate in an art com­pe­ti­tion next year aimed at pro­mot­ing re­cy­cling aware­ness among pri­mary and high school stu­dents.

The Scrap Bat­tle Re­cy­cling Art com­pe­ti­tion, hosted by the Bun­bury Welling­ton Re­gional Waste Group, is funded with a $20,000 Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment grant and prize con­tri­bu­tions from par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ments.

Re­cy­clable ma­te­ri­als will be pro­vided by the Bun­bury Har­vey Re­gional Coun­cil and stu­dents will cre­ate sculp­tures to be judged.

Har­vey shire pres­i­dent Ta­nia Jack­son has been nom­i­nated as a judge and will se­lect a coun­cil­lor’s award from the Har­vey en­trants.

Free work­shops will also be held with a pro­fes­sional artist in each par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment area.

The com­pe­ti­tion will be open to all pri­mary and se­condary stu­dents and is ex­pected to be ad­ver­tised be­fore the 2017/18 school hol­i­days with en­tries clos­ing by the end of term 1 2018.
