Top Outdoor Spot 2020

The Walking Access Commission Ara Hīkoi Aotearoa Top Outdoor Spot 2020 competition promotes access to the outdoors.

The competition ran during terms 1 and 2 of 2020. School students sent in photos, artworks and/or poems and stories of their favourite outdoor spot. We will announce the winners soon.

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

  1. Best photo
  2. Best art, and
  3. Best writing

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