Turning waste into wonder
TURNING waste into wonder is the aim of the Fraser Coast Regional Council’s Junior Bursary this year.
The annual competition, open to primary students from Maryborough and Woocoo’s outlying areas, is set to get kids thinking green with the theme Water, Waste and Energy.
Winners in three age categories will score cash prizes and trophies.
Council community development officer Patrice Bates said the bursary aimed to encourage and develop children’s cultural and literary talents.
Each age category has a different task to complete to enter.
Students in Prep to Year 2 are asked to create a painting enjoying water. Years 3 and 4 have to make a rubbish monster and students from Years 5 to 7 get to create an energy-saver superhero.
Entries close on March 3 and can be dropped in to any council administration centre.
