Threatened Species Art Competition
Posted on: 16.05.2016
The Threatened Species Art Competition (TSAC) is a regional environmental education program, that encourages all young people aged 5-12 across the Macarthur region to learn about a local threatened species and represent it in a piece of creative artwork.
The Macarthur region, our backyard, is home to a wide diversity of native plants and animals. Many of these plants and animals are at risk from a range of threatening processes such as habitat loss, competition with and predation by introduced species and disease.
Through these artworks, the competition highlights the plight of our threatened species and the need for everyone to do their bit to help protect and enhance their survival both now and into the future.
Each year, there are some fantastic environmentally themed prizes to be won by both individual winners and participating schools. This year, Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan has come on board and will be helping to make those prizes even greater.
The prize values for each age category is listed below:
- First Place: TSAC Eco Pack valued between $150 and $250
- Second Place: TSAC Eco Pack valued between $50 and $100
- Third Place: TSAC Eco Pack valued up to $50
