The Art Competition was held to select art works created by students to adorn the new Education and Training Centre building. The first round of the competition was held in conjunction with the Overberg Eisteddfod. The Sunshine Foundation sponsored the materials, workshops and entry fees to allow 190 students from 15 pre-schools and schools to enter the Eisteddfod for the first time. On the 31st August open day for viewing the Eisteddfod work, 57 finalists were selected and each of the 25 participating schools were represented in this group. These finalists won R100 and went forward for the selection of the 31 works that will be framed and hung in the new building. Further prizes of R300 were be awarded. Three bursaries of R5000, R2500 and R1000 were awarded to the most promising students.
Much excitement has been generated in all communities through this initiative and many thanks to the funder for making this possible.
