Poster com­pe­ti­tion

Central Leader - - News -

The chance to spend a day with the navy, army or air force is up for grabs in a new com­pe­ti­tion.

Op­er­a­tion An­zac Spirit is a com­pe­ti­tion for year 7 and 8 stu­dents, run by the New Zealand De­fence Force, which re­quires chil­dren to de­sign a poster il­lus­trat­ing what An­zac Day means to them.

Chief of De­fence Force Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Jerry Mateparae says in­creas­ing num­bers of young peo­ple at dawn ser­vices shows the sense of na­tional pride that New Zealan­ders feel for An­zac Day.

The com­pe­ti­tion closes on April 25, with the win­ners an­nounced on May 5.

The Royal Re­turned and Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion will also se­lect 12 en­tries to pro­duce a 2010 cal­en­dar for the 95th an­niver­sary of the Gal­lipoli land­ings.
