Young girl creating artwork

Group Entry – Ages 5-12 along with an adult

Designed especially for our next generation of students, Young Minds, Young Dreams, invites our younger New Zealanders to share their dreams for the future. We want them to share with our Government, “What does education mean to us?”

What do I do?

Teachers or adult mentors should lead a group of students in a creative exercise about what their idea school looks like where everyone reaches their full potential. Students might think about:

  • In the future, I want to be…
  • When I leave school I want to be able to…
  • In the future school will be like….

Students then create a visual artwork called ‘Our Voice,’ which reflects the messages most important to your students.

What do I need to enter?

Complete the Young Minds, Young Dreams entry form and submit it with a high-resolution photograph of the students’ artwork and a 200 word summary of the key messages that the students would like to share.

Details on how to enter will be published on this website on 6 June.

What’s up for grabs?

Grants and spot prizes, which can be used for any initiative involving the students.

  • 1st $1000
  • 2nd - $500
  • 3rd - $250

 When do I need to enter by?
