Local children have been rewarded for their creativity and passion for endangered species at the Threatened Species Art and Writing Competition awards ceremony this week.

More than 500 local children from the Macarthur region entered the competition which invited entrants to learn about a threatened plant or animal and represent it in an artwork or creative writing piece.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said the works were of a high calibre and congratulated the winners.

“The Macarthur area is home to quite a unique environment, and it is important that we help our children learn about our flora and fauna while using their creative flair,” Cr Fedeli said.

“The Threatened Species Art and Writing Competition continues to help educate our locals, while they impress us with their creativity.”

“I’d like to congratulate our winners and thank everyone who entered this year’s competition.”
