A DUNCRAIG student’s artwork discouraging littering has won a Statewide competition.
Glengarry Primary School’s Mia Ciccarone (11) won Keep Australia Beautiful’s Design a Bin Sticker competition for her ‘If You Bin it You Win it’ entry.
Judges deemed the 400 entries of such a high standard that they also awarded two runners up prizes, with one going to fellow Glengarry Year 6 student Brianna Aldersea.
The school has received 10 stickers of Mia’s design and five with Brianna’s to place on bins around the grounds.
Mia said she felt proud to win the competition.
“Hopefully when the bin stickers go up it will encourage people to recycle more and think about the environment,” she said.
“One way we can start helping the environment is to recycle paper products which will save cutting down our trees, and to recycle plastic products so they don’t go into our oceans and hurt our marine life.
“Recycle today to save our planet tomorrow.”
