Kid's Christmas creations to light up Auckland icon

Kid's Christmas creations to light up Auckland icon

Primary school children across Auckland will be stretching their imaginations in the hopes of having their Christmas-themed designs transformed into New Zealand's largest laser projection. The regional search kicked off today to find a festive design, created by a primary school class, to become the highlight of a community Christmas event at the TelstraClear Pacific Centre in Manukau on 20 December.

Luke Patterson, TelstraClear Marketing Manager, says this is a unique opportunity for children to see their own creations come to life.

"This is a great way for kids to express their artistic talents using an interesting high-tech medium and for teachers to do something different with their students in the lead up to the holiday season. I can't wait to see the winning design light up the sky.

"This event is the perfect fit for TelstraClear since it combines our community and family focus with leading-edge technology that's designed to connect and entertain people."

The winning class will have their design brought to life as a public animated laser projection and will also receive a $1,000 TelstraClear voucher for their school to use on products and services like TelstraClear's leading high-speed broadband service.

To enter the competition children and teachers can visit to download an entry form and start a laser-powered Christmas animation adventure.
