Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace urged budding Queensland artists to show off their talents and deliver important safety messages for those who live and work on the land.

“It’s about getting creative to help save lives on farms,” Ms Grace said.

“It’s a fun competition but a serious message. The agriculture industry employs around three per cent of Queensland’s workers but accounts for more than 30 per cent of workplace deaths.

“This gets kids thinking about and advocating for their own and their parents’ safety from a young age – and as we all know, they can be very persistent and persuasive once they’ve set their minds on something!”

Primary school students are encouraged to use their artistic flair to illustrate important safety messages about electricity, animals, tractors and machinery, quad bikes, water or general health and wellbeing.

The winners receive a $250 gift voucher and $500 for their school.

Entries close on Friday 24 June, with the winners to be announced in October. Once printed, 30,000 copies of the free calendar will be distributed around the state.
