Valuing Our Water photo competition

Updated Valuing Our Water Photo Competition 02

This year, we partnered with Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority, on our photo competition for school students in our regions to show us how they value water.

Students grabed a phone, camera or ipad and got creative by showing us why water is important. 

There were two winners in each of the competition’s categories:

  • Foundation to Year 2 ($200 prizes)
    • Isaac Sutherland, St Joseph’s Primary, Coleraine
    • Annie Jackson, Dunkeld Consolidated School
  • Years 3 to 6 (Go Pro cameras)
    • Ruby Herrmann, Branxholme Wallacedale Community School
    • Olivia Emeny, Woodford Primary School
  • Years 7 to 9 (Go Pro cameras)
    • Sophia Leeming, Balmoral Community College
    • Zara Fox, Emmanuel College, Warrnambool
  • Years 10 to 12 (Go Pro cameras)
    • Destiny Bambridge, Mercy Regional College
    • Eva Wellington, Emmanuel College Warrnambool

There was also a random prize draw giving participating schools a chance to win one of two water efficient prizes to the value of $330. These were awarded to George Street Primary School and Warrnambool College.

We were overwhelmed with more than 180 of images were entered by students across the region. Watch the slideshow below of the 2021 competition entries.
