Bravehearts today announced a national chalk art competition as part of the 2017 White Balloon Day campaign.
“Child protection is everybody’s business,” says Hetty Johnston AM, Founder and Executive Chair of Bravehearts.
“The chalk art competition is a really accessible way for people of all ages to show their support for Aussie kids.”
Adopted by Bravehearts as their signature awareness event in 1996, White Balloon Day is Australia’s largest campaign dedicated solely to preventing child sexual assault and unites communities, businesses, schools and organisations to break the silence surrounding this crime and to make a commitment to protecting Aussie kids.
“All drawings must contain a white balloon,” says Marketing Manager Zoe Hermans, who designed the chalk art competition.
“From there we are really encouraging participants to be as creative as possible with their entries.”
The competition is divided into three categories including schools and childcare centres, individuals and community groups. Two winners will be selected in each category with one chosen by Bravehearts and another by popular choice.
Winning entries will be awarded a Personal Safety Education Resource pack. Each pack includes Bravehearts’ personal safety programs Ditto in a Box and a CyberEcho workbook valued at over $200 together with a selection of Bravehearts merchandise.
Entries open on 1 July with submissions closing on 1 September. Winners will be announced on White Balloon Day on 8 September.
