Welcome to the Primary School Category of the Competition, this part of the competition is open to all Australian school students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Entry to this category is FREE with a limit of 4 entries per student.
For this category you’re asked to take photos that represent the Competition theme Healthy Life – Healthy You.
Here are some topic ideas:
- Physical activity and healthy lifestyles
- Respectful relationships
- Healthy environments
- Diversity, multiculturalism and inclusion
- Healthy communities
- Well-being, resilience, purpose and happiness.
It’s really important that you understand the health aspects of your topic and healthy behaviours that should be included in your photographs.
An example of this is if you’re taking a photograph of someone exercising in the sun, you ensure they’re wearing sun protection , this shows the judges that you’ve taken the time to learn about healthy behaviours.
Have a talk with your parent/guardian/teacher and friends to work out what would be a good photo to take, you can also find a range of health related topics and ideas at the Your Health Link website.
There are a few things you need to know before you take your photograph, so go to the Dos and Don’ts section of this website to find out more, please follow our Photographic Submission Guidelines for image exclusions.
There are some great prizes for this category and if you win a prize your school will also receive a prize to support its Healthy School Canteen Program or similar initiative terms and conditions apply.
We’re looking for the photos that best capture the idea of eating and celebrating the rainbow.
What is eating the rainbow?
Vegetables contain heaps of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients OR antioxidants that keep our bodies healthy. Veggies of different colours have different vitamins and minerals, so it’s important to eat a variety of colours so that we get all the nutrients we need.
Veggies also contain fibre, which helps us feel full and keeps everything running smoothly. The best way to ensure you get all the nutritional benefits that veggies have to offer is by “eating the rainbow” – the more colours the better!
You could eat the rainbow by making a colourful salad, a sandwich full of different hues or create a rainbow of veggies on your dinner plate. Can you think of any other ways to eat the rainbow?
Eating the Rainbow Prize:
- 32GB Wifi iPad plus 1-year membership to Healthy Kids Association.
You must have permission from your parent or guardian to enter this part of the Competition (see Terms and Conditions). Get them to help you fill out the entry form and upload your image.
