Operation ANZAC Spirit Poster Competition Launched

Operation ANZAC Spirit Poster Competition Launched

Encouraging students to learn about Anzac Day is the aim of Operation ANZAC Spirit – a competition for Year 7 and 8 students – launched today by the New Zealand Defence Force.

The competition asks students to design a poster based around this year’s Anzac Day theme – “Honouring the ANZAC spirit – in your local community”.

Prizes up for grabs include a fun-filled day out with the New Zealand Navy, Army, or Air Force.

Vice Chief of Defence Force Rear Admiral Jack Steer says an increasing number of young people are attending Anzac Day ceremonies.

“I encourage students in Year 7 and 8 to enter Operation ANZAC Spirit and to learn more what happens on Anzac Day in their community.

“It is sometimes difficult for younger generations to understand why we have a special day to remember those who fought for our country.

“Operation ANZAC Spirit is a great opportunity for young people to learn about why many individuals and families mark Anzac Day by attending their local service to commemorate and remember those who served, and those who continue to serve in New Zealand’s Navy, Army and Air Force.”

The competition will be judged by NZ Army Artist, Captain Matt Gauldie.

Operation ANZAC Spirit closes on Anzac Day (25 April). Winners will be announced at a prizegiving ceremony at Defence House on 9 May 2012.
