With the school holidays just around the corner, we’re running our annual colouring competition for Mental Health Awareness Week.
This year we are focusing on the Five Ways to Wellbeing in nature, asking Kiwis to Let nature in to strengthen their wellbeing – Mā te taiao, kia whakaparkari tōu oranga!
Connecting with nature can uplift your wairua/spirit and promote wellbeing so with this activity we’re encouraging all kids to get outdoors to connect with the joy and wonder of being in nature.
What to do:
- Download and print a copy of our colouring competition.
- Head outside into nature and show us how you connect with it, what you see, smell and hear. Draw and colour-in everything you see.
- Post your entry so we receive it before 5pm Friday, 26 October 2018 to: Mental Health Foundation, PO Box 10051, Dominion Rd, Auckland 1446.
- Or scan or snap a picture of your entery and email it to us with the subject line ‘Colouring competition entry’.
The colouring competition is open to children aged between 4–12 (but anyone who likes to draw can still take part!).
- 4–6 years

The three lucky winners from each age group will win a $100 Prezzy card. Entries close 5pm on Friday, 26 October 2018 and winners will be notified by Friday, 9 November 2018, via phone or email. Terms and conditions apply.
