Competitions 2017 Picture Book Competition for Primary Schools

2017 Picture Book Competition for Primary Schools

Primary students from across Australia competed in our 2017 Picture Book Competition. Working in teams of 2 to 4, students wrote and illustrated picture books about a safe rail journey. Their books had to include characters who show how amazing they are at staying safe around trains, trams, tracks and level crossings – how they demonstrate the TrackSAFE Actions.

The quality of the entries was so high that our judges Marie, Shane and Kate had a very hard time scoring them. Well done to everyone who entered, you all made a huge effort to research, write and illustrate your books!
