Competitions and Surveys
Abel Tasman Art & Design Prize
The Abel Tasman Art & Design Prize is open to students in years 11 and 12 in schools and colleges in Tasmania. The prize celebrates the link between The Netherlands and Tasmania. Every second year, the winning Tasmanian student spends three weeks visiting the City of Grootegast, home of the Dutch Explorer Abel Tasman. On alternate years, the winning student from The Netherlands visits Tasmania. The Prize is run collaboratively by Kingborough Council, the Dutch Australian Society and the Pathways Project. Entries will be called again in 2014.
Community Resilience Survey
This short survey will help Kingborough understand the community’s awareness to natural hazards as well as its ability to respond to events should they occur. The survey is anonymous and Council will publish the survey results once complete. The findings of the survey will help Council prepare and respond to natural hazards (link below).
Climate Change Survey
This short survey is designed to help Council gain an insight into what the community thinks about the impacts of climate change and your views on how we should respond. This survey is the first of an annual survey as part of the Triggers for Change Climate Change Implementation project and will provide a valuable baseline (link below).
