Name the Pelican competition
The new pelican and fish sculpture in the All Abilities Playground is now complete and a competition has been launched to give the sculpture a name.
The Moira Shire Council are holding the competition for school students who after being announced winner can see the name they chose etched in a plaque to be displayed next to the sculpture as well as scoring themselves a gift pack.
Mark Rosenbrock a chainsaw artist and sculptor was contacted by Moira Shire Council Team Leader of Arts, Culture and Events Marilyn Gourley two months ago to come to Yarrawonga and sculpt an old tree stump in the playground.
What he created is fun and edgy and deserves a name to go with its witty characteristics.
Mark himself said his pelican defied even his imagination.
“The pelican has more character than I even planned because of the restrictions with the tree,” he said.
To enter the competition students must fill out an entry form providing their name, age, contact details, the name they have chosen for the pelican and their reason for choosing said name.
Entry forms can be collected from the Yarrawonga Service Centre, Yarrawonga Chronicle or Yarrawonga Mulwala Visitor Information Centre.
Competition closes at 5pm, October 20 and entrants can return their completed forms to any of the three businesses where entry forms were first collected.
