A CLEVER way of asking “R U OK?” has won South West TAFE student Amity Pope an iPad.
To mark R U OK? Day last week, TAFE ran a competition asking students and the local community to submit a photo of them using everyday objects to spell out R U OK?.
Ms Pope, a nursing student, used a number of medical items for her photo, beating other entries which included writing in the sand and a hairy chest with the letters waxed out of it.
“It was great to see so many people getting behind it to help spread the R U OK? Day message,” Ms Pope said.
The competition was organised by TAFE’s community services students.
R U OK? Day is a national day aimed at encouraging people to ask “are you OK?” in a meaningful and regular way and to support people who may be struggling.
