Top Outdoor Spot 2019

During 2019 The Walking Access Commission Ara Hīkoi Aotearoa invited your students to enter our Top Outdoor Spot competition to promote access to the outdoors.

The competition ran from 28 February to 6 July 2019. School children sent in a photo, artwork or short poem/story of their favourite outdoor spot. 

The top three entries in each category won a prize pack for themselves and/or their school. The three categories were:

  1. Best Photo
  2. Best Artwork, and
  3. Best Story/Poem

Any student enrolled in a New Zealand school was eligible to win the Top Outdoor Spot competition. While this competition is targeted at years 4-8, teachers could encourage younger or older students to take part.
