About the Competition
The Macarthur region, our backyard, is home to a wide diversity of native plants and animals. Many of these plants and animals are affected by a range of impacts such as habitat loss, competition and predation from non-native species and foreign diseases. There are a range of species occurring within the local region that are at risk of extinction and have been listed as ‘Threatened Species.’
The Threatened Species Art and Writing Competition (TSAC) is a regional environmental education program, involving Wollondilly Shire Council, Campbelltown City Council and Camden Council. The competition celebrates Biodiversity Month (September) and Threatened Species Day on 7 September.
The competition targets all stages of primary school, and is open to young people aged 5 - 12. TSAC encourages students to learn about a local threatened species and represent it in an artwork or creative writing piece.
The competition is now in its 15th year and through its cross-curricula nature has been successfully engaging primary schools in Geography, Science, Visual Arts and English throughout the Macarthur region.
