Kids Competition

Entries for our colouring and drawing competition are now open!

As part of the festivities surrounding our Rangiora mural project we invite young artists to get creative and share the same inspiration we have used to come up with our design ‘In Our Hands’. Our mural shares a message of conservation and caring for our native flora and fauna. The safety of our native plants, birds, reptiles, insects and more are in our hands. So, pick up your pencils, your paints, and your pens and get making amazing art that shares this same message!

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES – MARCH 7th

In it to win it! NOTE: Prize details to be announced soon…but rest assured, they will be pretty sweet!
