City Services are gearing up for Canberra’s annual event celebrating all things ‘treesy’ with the opening of its children’s drawing competition.

Inviting entries, City Services said Tree Week, 29 April – 7 May, provided an opportunity for the community to learn more about the value of trees in the Territory.

“Our city is full of beautiful, unique and exceptional trees and forests that provide many positive benefits to the community” City Services said.

“This year for Canberra Tree Week the ACT Government and the Australian National Botanic Garden are hosting an art competition for Canberra kids.”

It said entries were open until 23 March to five- to 12-year-olds and drawings could be in pencil, paint, crayon, mixed media or as a digitally created artwork.

The Directorate said the theme of this year’s competition was ‘Trees and Me’ “so use your imagination and show us how you connect with the trees in your backyard, parks and gardens”

“Are you 5-12 years old?” the City Services asked.

“Do you love jumping on crunchy leaves, collecting gumnuts or climbing trees?

“Grab a crayon or some glitter glue and draw your connection to trees!”
