RESOURCES: Lion Club member(s) to keep in contact with schools and connect ‘Critical Friends’
- Each school will decide the format of their submission. Choices include (but are not limited to) Creative (dramatic, audio-visual, mixed media); Environmental science; Computer science; Practical (physical solutions for home or community use); Social (influencing the community to make behavior changes); or Advocacy (such as working to convince Council to make a decision that favours koalas).
- Liaise with schools to encourage use of ‘Critical Friends’ to gain advice on content and direction.
- Review Submission Outlines to ensure software compatibility for judges (this will reduce issues at time of submission) – you may need to prompt schools to provide this form.
- Video productions are limited to 3 minutes – you may need to remind schools of the guidelines addressed in the Overview document.
- If schools are submitting an artwork, be sure they include an explanation of how it was made, what the aim of it is, and what KOALA SMART goal it addresses.
- If a “device” or “product” is the intended result, request detailed plans/drawings and include a description of the device along with an explanation of how it is to be used. A prototype would be ideal but certainly not compulsory.
