NRM Education calendar artwork competition

Announcing our 2020 calendar artwork competition winners.

The NRM Education team would like to thank each and every student who submitted artwork for our calendar competition. We received over 230 entries which made selection for the calendar very tricky.

Every student who entered will receive a thank you certificate when we send the artworks back to school. The winning entries listed here (in no particular order) will have their artwork featured in our 2020 calendar and will receive some copies of the calendar to share with family and friends.

Thank you again for your efforts in helping us to celebrate the International Year of Plant Health. Look out for the calendars in the mail.
