We are once again running the Art competition working with Gippsland Department of Education and Training. Students from schools who have signed up for the Respectful Relationships initiative are encouraged to get their artwork that ‘challenges gender stereotypes’ in as the competition is coming to a close.
This year, finalists will see their artwork go up on the sides of Gippsland Buses with a launch during this year’s 16 Days of Activism, sharing their positive message far and wide.
If your school, or your child’s school is part of the Respectful Relationships initiative, we encourage all students to enter the competition. Ask your teacher about the competition and collect an entry form from your school or from the Gippsland Women’s Health website,link below:
