PRIMARY school students are vying for a chance to have their Naidoc billboard design featured at Swan Districts headquarters for a year.
Indigenous AFLW Fremantle and Swan Districts women players Gemma Houghton and Emily McGuire launched the competition, which focused on the 2018 Naidoc theme of ‘Because of Her, We can’, at Swan View and St Michael’s primary schools last month.
The winner will have their design displayed at Bassendean Oval on a billboard from Naidoc round on July 7 until Naidoc round in 2019.
The theme celebrated the role of Indigenous women and to recognise the contributions Indigenous people made to society.
Houghton said young students had the power to do and be anything they wanted to be and encouraged them to pursue their goals.
McGuire said it was amazing to see the amount of interest shared among the students who listened to her journey.
“I love that I can inspire the future generations to excel in what they love,” she said.
The competition ends on June 8.
