Last year’s White Balloon Day Chalk Art Project was such a success that we decided to bring it back again this year! >CHECK OUT LAST YEAR’S SUBMISSIONS
The Chalk Art Project is a way for schools, childcare centres and communities to mark White Balloon Day and raise awareness of child protection. Last year’s project helped communities engage children in important conversations about personal safety and child protection.
“This [The Chalk Art Project] was a great experience we had with the children creating some wonderful topics of discussion. Thank you for the opportunity.” – Teacher, Goodstart, Morayfield, QLD
As in 2017, contributions to the project will be featured across Bravehearts’ social media networks all throughout Child Protection Week (starting September 2) in the lead up to White Balloon Day on September 7, 2018. KEEP SCROLLING FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO ENTER.
This year’s theme is HELP KIDS FIND THEIR VOICE.
This year we will only be ‘judging’ schools, childcare centres and child-related community groups/organisations, however anyone can get involved.
Two winning submissions in each category will be awarded a Personal Safety Education Resource Pack for your school, childcare centre or community group. This pack will include Bravehearts’ personal safety programs, Ditto in a Box and CyberEcho (workbook), together valued at over $200, as well as a variety of Bravehearts merchandise.
Project submissions open on JULY 1st, 2018 and Bravehearts will begin accepting submissions from this date. Submissions close on Thursday September 1, 2018. Winners will be announced on White Balloon Day, September 7th 2018.
