Top Outdoor Spot 2019
The Walking Access Commission Ara Hīkoi Aotearoa invites your students to enter our Top Outdoor Spot competition to promote access to the outdoors.
The competition runs from 28 February to 6 July 2019. School children send in a photo, artwork or short poem/story of their favourite outdoor spot. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the entries submitted so far.
The top three entries in each category win a prize pack for themselves and/or their school. The three categories are:
- Best Photo
- Best Artwork, and
- Best Story/Poem
Any student enrolled in a New Zealand school is eligible to win the Top Outdoor Spot competition. While this competition is targeted at years 4-8, teachers can encourage younger or older students to take part.
Entries are now closed
