The Schools Reconciliation Challenge is an annual art and writing competition for primary and high school students across NSW. The theme ‘Our Voices, Our Future’ is about celebrating the voices of young people and empowering students to recognise that their voices matter.
In its ninth year, the Schools Reconciliation Challenge is an annual program run by Reconciliation NSW to inspire young artists, writers and creators. The National Trust (NSW) is very proud to partner with Reconciliation NSW to host a travelling exhibition comprised of works from primary and high school students who have taken up the challenge of portraying the theme of Reconciliation – ‘Our Voices Our Future.’
The Schools Reconciliation Challenge encourages young people to dream big and share their visions for our future and see the power they have to effect change within their school and local community through their listening, words and actions.
The Challenge is facilitated through the Schools Reconciliation Challenge website.
