The Woollahra council very popular Kids Truck Art Competition is back again this year. Local primary school students (K-6) are invited to create an artwork around the theme Caring for our Environment. The winning artworks will be printed on waste trucks for everyone to see!

Caring for our environment means doing simple things every day that can help keep our planet in great shape.

The theme is broad and kids are encouraged to use their imagination and creativity. Some potential themes kids might like to explore in their artwork include:

  • Waste management, recycling or composting
  • Litter and pollution prevention
  • Protecting our oceans, bushlands and animals
  • Reducing plastic
  • Clean air and energy
  • Sustainable living.
