Write To Remember Our ANZACS: Riverina MP and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack is urging students to enter his 10th annual ANZAC writing competition. “It is imperative that we continue to build on the momentum gained during the centenary of ANZAC commemorations. This is why I produce an ANZAC Day booklet each year, which also contains ANZAC service times across the region and is distributed to every mailbox in the electorate. One of the highlights of the booklet is the publica- tion of the winning entries from the ANZAC writing competition.” Last year more than 800 entries from more than 35 different schools were received. Each winning and highly commended entry will receive a book prize with a signed commemorative label. Every student who enters will receive a signed certificate which will feature a watermark image oft his year’s cover. Entries need to be submitted by 5pm, on Friday, 28th February either by mail to the Wagga Wagga Electorate Office (Suite 2, 11-15 Fitzmaurice Street, Wagga Wagga 2650) or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
