Students can choose from 2 different poster designs.


2) Primary and High School Students can enter a short film competition to be in with the chance to win a $200 prize. Entries close Friday, 16th November.

The film must be under 5 minutes in length and respond in part or full to the question: What can we do to make sure there's water for me and water for all?
