Get the paints and crayons out! We want to encourage children to explore their artistic creativity while learning about the many South Australian plants and animals which are facing extinction. Primary school age children have the opportunity to research a vanishing local native species and to express their feelings by creating an original painting, drawing or mixed media art work.

1st and 2nd prizes for passes to Warrawong will be awarded in each age group of 5-7 years old, 8-10 years old and 11-12 years old. Prizes will also be awarded for Most Unusual entry, Most Original and Best Written Explanation.

The competition is open for entries from July 9th till August 20th. The winners will be announced on Threatened Species Day, Saturday September 7th and selected art works will be on display at The Summit Community Centre.
