This year, ten local primary schools participated with ninety students producing a piece of writing addressing the topic “What does Anzac Day mean to me”.

Congratulations to everyone who contributed their stories, letters and poems.

The judging panel, made up of representatives from local RSLs and a community member, had a difficult task working through the many well-crafted entries.

It was a privilege to visit the primary schools of the winner and the two runners-up immediately before Anzac Day.

The major prize winners received a certificate and a book outlining the story of a local veteran and our area’s connections with the events of WWI.
