Remembrance Day Poster Competition

Victorian Primary School students and classes are invited to enter the annual Remembrance Day Poster Competition. 

This year's theme is 'Helping and Healing' and we are wanting to remember the service men and women who unselfishly help those injured during war and peacekeeping operations. We are looking for original entries that are portrait oriented, eye-catching, colourful (although not fluorescent colours), imaginative and demonstrate a good understanding of the theme. Inspiration for the theme,  may be drawn from reflecting on the work of the Medical Corps., volunteers, service personnel on peacekeeping missions and individual stories or experiences that reflect the theme. Teacher's can view a Lesson Plan developed to generate creative ideas in the classroom for this project. Artwork(s) must be
no larger than A3 and portrait orientation. 

The competition closes on Tuesday 9 October at 5pm.
