Media Release: Reconciliation Week 2020:

Walgett Shire Youth and Young People encouraged to get involved in Reconciliation Week 2020 Art Competition.

Due to the current situation with COVID -19 Council and local services are still unsure if any inclusive community events can be staged during Reconciliation Week 2020

In a bid to inform young people and create conversations around reconciliation and what it means to people Council have partnered with Mission Australia and Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service to stage an “all inclusive” Art competition for all young people.

The categories are:

Kindergarten – Years 3 – colour in the attached template  
Years 4 – Years 6   –    paint / draw what reconciliation means to you
Years 7 – Years  12   – paint / draw what reconciliation means to you

A template, available by contacting Ms Reburdah Dennis or Council’s website is to be utilized for Kindy- Year 3 ages colouring in comp, and from years 4-6 and 7-12 we are accepting drawings/ paintings of

“What reconciliation means” to the young person. The competition will be staged across communities, Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Collarenebri and include outlying schools of Burren Junction, Rowena, and Carinda

The comp starts on the 27th May and all entries must be received at Council office by the 26th June.    Prizes are exceptional in all categories with three winners of each community. All entries must be on A4 size paper.

Our Judge is local artist, Mr. Frank Wright (Dhinawan) with winners to be announced during NAIDOC WEEK 2020.  On behalf of the supporting services we encourage schools and our young people to get involved and participate.
