Held in September each year, local schools submit artwork from the year groups of kindy to year 7 with the chance to win some great prizes.
Displayed artworks are numbered, with the artist's name kept under wraps until the winners are announced at the awards ceremony. A judging panel of local artists and art enthusiasts are asked to judge the artworks each year. An Encouragement and a High Commendation award are given to two artworks in each year group. There is also a prize for the overall winner of all year groups.
