Rangelands NRM are pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 Kaz Collins School of the Air Photo Competition.

The overall first prize of a digital SLR camera goes to Jessica (Year 6) from Kalgoorlie School of the Air. Jessica’s image ‘Under the Eucla Jetty’ with the sun’s refelction impressed all of the judges.

Runner up was Matilda, a pre-primary student from Meekathara School of the Air. Matilta’s photo ‘Amazing wildlife in the desert’ captures birds taking flight. She will receive a telescope kit.

The competition, which started in 2011 invites children living in the bush to submit photos of their ‘country’. Children from all five Schools of the Air (Kalgoorlie, Meekathara, Carnarvon, Port Hedland and Kimberley) took part.
