THE City of Casey was inspired by its budding artists this month when it held a creative competition for its younger generations. 

Casey Creations is a creative arts competition for young people who live, work or study within Casey.

The annual competition promotes participation, sharing of ideas, having a voice, showcasing talents and celebrates the contributions of young people to the community.

Young people from grade five through to year 12 were encouraged to enter and more than 250 entries were received across two categories; visual arts and photography.

With no theme to the competition, entrants were able to let their imaginations run wild and express their beliefs, values and individual creations through various mediums.

Award winners and their families were invited to a presentation evening at Casey Grammar School on Thursday 5 May.

Entrants were awarded across junior, intermediate and senior categories with a winner, merit and encouragement awards presented in each section. 

The artwork of first place and merit awards will be on exhibition at the Endeavour Hills Library from 2 June – 31 July 2017.
