Green lawns, flowerbeds, picket fences and dogs called 'Rex' are recurring themes in artworks created by Queensland children to illustrate what a healthy home looks like.
Over 250 drawings have been received in the department's 'Healthy Homes' school art competition held in Queensland's 34 discrete Indigenous communities.
The competition asked primary school students to reflect the importance of maintenance, hygiene and cleanliness around the home in their drawings.
Prizes including books, art and sporting equipment will be awarded to the three schools which best represented the message of healthy homes, as well as to the best entry in each age category of each school.
Winning schools and entrants will be notified of the results of this competition by the department soon.
The competition is part of a wider campaign highlighting the importance of healthy homes. Households in Indigenous communities will receive posters, wallet cards and other information about keeping their homes in shape over the coming months.
