2017 Children's Competition

Greetings All,

As 2017 begins, it’s time to think of the Children’s Competition for the Henry Lawson Festival.

As you may be aware this year is Henry’s 150th birthday. To celebrate we will have an imaginary Birthday Party, inviting characters from Australian Literature to join Henry.

Students will be able to choose their favourite character from any Australian story or poem and on an A-3 page:

  • K,1,2 Create a picture of that character with its name clearly printed on the front.
  • Years 3-6 Name the character and author of the story/ poem write a short description ( 2 or 3 paragraphs) and illustrate.

Prize winners will be presented with their awards on the Saturday of the Festival at 3.00pm on the stage in the Main Street.

The children’s work will be on display in shop windows from Monday, 5th June – Tuesday, 13th June after which they will be returned to the schools.

Look forward to receiving many wonderful entries.

Co-ordinator
