Truck art competition now open for all Moree shire students

STUDENTS across Moree Plains Shire are encouraged to get creative and submit designs for the2020 Truck Art Competition, run in collaboration with Moree Plains Shire Council and Cleanaway.

The theme for this year’s competition is Be Green, Keep Your Recycling Clean, with the winning design to be displayed on local council waste collection trucks.

The school-aged winning artist will be awarded a $150 Love Local Gift Card.

Moree Plains Shire Council’s temporary waste manager Victoria Dawson is excited to be running the competition and looks forward to seeing the artistic flair of students across the Shire.

“This competition was run three years ago with great success. In that year the theme focused on the organic recycling ‘green lid’ bin with our winner creatively illustrating that food scraps can go into the green bin which is then mulched by Cleanaway and turned into compost for the garden. That winning artwork is still on the some of the trucks today,” Ms Dawson said.

“This time, we’re asking students to demonstrate what items can go in the recycling ‘yellow lid’ bin and how simple it can be to recycle right. Draw on the theme Be Green, Keep Your Recycling Clean and help spread the message of recycling correctly.”

The competition is open until Friday, August 21, 2020 to all children in Kindergarten to Year 12 across Moree Plains Shire.

Entries must be submitted on a flat A4 paper in a landscape format or a digital pdf file.

Each entry will be individually judged by Moree Plains Shire Council and Cleanaway employees and the winner will be selected based on their artistic creativity and how well they depicted the competition theme.

All entrants should complete the attached competition entry form (also found on council website) and submit their design and form to Cleanaway by emailing or post to:

Jacqui Norrie


PO Box 159, Moree 2400

All children who attend a school throughout the Moree Plains are eligible to enter, however only one entry per individual will be accepted.
