The theme for the 2016 National Water Week Competition was “Water.Life.Growth”.
We received 150 wonderful entries from children at 15 primary schools across the region!
The winners were announced at a special event at the Western Business Accelerator and Centre for Excellence on 19 October 2016 to celebrate National Water Week.
The winners in each age category received:
- First prize: $100 gift card
- Second prize: $50 gift card
- Third prize: $30 gift card.
Killara Primary School and Myrniong Primary School each won a $250 school prize.
