Clorox Creative Challenge Winners Span The Country

The winners of this year’s Clorox Creative Challenge came from all over the country, spanning between Bluff and Auckland.

Children and teachers representing the winning schools attended the official awards ceremony held today at Auckland’s Sky Tower, to receive more than $40,000 worth of prizes and exhibit their creations.

More than 4,500 primary and intermediate children participated in this year’s Clorox Creative Challenge, creating wearable arts based on the theme “I am New Zealand’. The winners were chosen by a judging panel that included World fashion designer Denise L’Estrange-Corbet MNZM, Desna Jury, head of department of Art and Design at Auckland University of Technology (AUT), and Steve Fonagy, from Clorox New Zealand.

Desna Jury says she was overwhelmed with the standard of the entries. “I was impressed by the students’ use of fabulous bright colours and interesting surface textures,” she says. “It was wonderful to see so much evidence of the fun, learning and enjoyment that the children put into every creation.”

The Challenge has three major award categories - junior primary (school years 1-3), middle primary (school years 4-6) and intermediate (school years 7-8). Owairoa Primary from Auckland won the junior primary section, with T.K.K.M o Tamaki Nui A Rua from Dannevirke winning the middle primary category. Opotiki Primary from the Bay of Plenty was the winner of the intermediate section.

Each category winner receives a $5,000 “creativity grant’ for their school, a $1,500 “education grant’ for their teacher and a $500 “education voucher’ for the individual or group winner. Seven special honour awards were also presented with the winners receiving a $3,000 creativity grant for their school and a $250 book voucher for themselves.

Judge Denise L’Estrange-Corbet MNZM, says the Clorox Creative Challenge is a great way of encouraging children to work together. “The Challenge also teaches children to be mindful of the environment and the recycling issues that we face in the 21st Century.”
