[EDIT: The deadline for entries has been extended to Friday 17th March, 2017]
Writers, this is for you!!
Celebrate Mooroolbark is running a Writing Competition for students, sponsored by Victoria’s Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, James Merlino MP! Winners will be awarded cash prizes by Mr Merlino himself, on the main stage of the festival between 11:40am and 12 noon.
Explore the ways we can individually and collectively sustain, preserve and beautify our world and its resources, or write an imaginative piece around the theme of environmental sustainability. You might like to consider the following questions to get you started:
- What concerns you most about the environment – locally/nationally/globally?
- Why/How is it easy to “be green”?
- Why is “being green” important now and in the future?
- Imagine a world/city/town where everyone lived sustainably, what would it look like?
- Can you imagine the future and how people’s lives might be different to ours if environmental sustainability is/is not adopted by people today?
Entry is a Gold Coin and entries should be submitted to the Mooroolbark Community Centre no later than Friday, March 17.
