Moree Plains truck art competition winner announced

THE winner of the 2020 Truck Art Competition run in collaboration with Moree Plains Shire Council and Cleanaway has been announced.

Annie from Garah Public School created an impressive piece of art work reflecting this year’s theme, Be Green, Keep Your Recycling Clean and was able to unveil her design to her whole school with the newly decorated Cleanaway truck stopping by for a visit.

Moree Plains Shire Council Waste Manager Victoria Dawson was blown away by the number of entries received from school children across the Shire, the depth of recycling knowledge and artistic talent they bought to the competition.

“Choosing a winner was very difficult – very entry had a unique way of expressing the competition theme, using intricate and thoughtful designs and vibrant colours,” Ms Dawson said.

Competition winner Annie awarded prizes with Garah Public School students and principal, Councillor Mike Montgomery, Council staff member Dayna Koss and Cleanaway operations manager Jacqui Norrie.

“In the end we decided on Annie’s art work as the gorgeous design clearly articulated how to recycle right and what items can and cannot go into the yellow lid bin.

“It was great to hold the event at Garah Public School today to see Annie’s reaction and her art work featured on the Cleanaway truck. The truck will service the Shire’s kerbside collection so the whole Moree Plains Shire community will have a chance to enjoy Annie’s art work on one of their collection days,” she said.

In addition to having the winning design featured on a local council waste collection truck, Annie was also awarded a $150 Love Local Gift Card.

The competition runner-up was Annabelle from St Philomena’s who received a $50 Love Local Gift Card.
