    • Best Cow was a win for Caroline Chisholm College Glenmore Park with “Athena”

     

    • Caroline Chisholm College

    This is what the art judge had to say about “Athena” “ Athena says just about everything that can be said about the dairy industry in Australia. With her puzzle base and upright stand, she takes the form of a trophy – a trophy proclaiming Dairy as the Winner! The puzzle base, which depicts a stereotypical dairy farm image, opens up to reveal a series of milk myths, which are then busted by dairy industry facts.

  • Caroline Chisholm College 2

    Her sides talk about the impact of the carbon tax on the dairy industry, the staggering quantities of cows needed to provide the required amounts of milk, the processes and the biosecurity risks to the industry itself. Scattered all over are also a series of QR Codes, which then link the viewer to a wealth of further information. Definitely the complete dairy picture!”

    • Best blog

    The blog component resulted in a tie between De La Salle College at Caringbah and Shoalhaven High School at Nowra
