An opportunity not to be “Waste-Ed”

LOCAL school students are encouraged to whip out their art supplies and get creative by participating in the exciting and colourful competition ‘Waste-Ed Art’.

Run by Glenorchy City Council’s Waste Services department, local schools are invited to get students to create an artwork as a school or class group.

The competition theme is: “What does a litter free world look like?”

All artworks entered will be displayed at the Moonah Arts Centre during July 2018.

A winning artwork will be selected by Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston and displayed on the side of Glenorchy City Council’s new litter truck.

“How exciting for children to see their artwork moving around the community on such a spectacular moveable canvas,” Mayor Johnston said.

“Our young people are so much more aware of recycling and repurposing waste these days, and this is another initiative to reinforce those messages and also a great way to bring out their creativity.

“I’ll be looking forward to seeing the artworks on display and meeting the talented youngsters who create these pieces.”

An event to open the display and announce the winning work will be held at Moonah Arts Centre at 11am on Friday 6 July 2018.

Visit Glenorchy City Council’s website for terms and condition and details on how to enter your group’s artwork.

Entry forms should be submitted to waste education officer Danielle Hall at dhall@gcc.tas.gov.au by Friday 22 June 2018.
