Drumroll please... Illustration Competition winning and highly commended entries announced!

Over 350 entries were received from 12 primary schools across Cooma, Jindabyne, Adaminaby, Bombala, Berridale, Bredbo, and Nimmitabel. Most of these talented young students participated in Illustrator Sessions with the CUC at their school, and our staff were impressed with the enthusiasm and creativity shown when asked to draw what they wanted to be when they grew up. Entries included farmers, jet ski riders, and engineers, to name a few!
