WHEN Marlee Nickl walks through the gates of the Warrnambool Show for the first time, she will be greeted by her artwork emblazoned on the show’s program.
The grade six Grasmere Primary School pupil was selected as the winner of a competition to create a picture for the front of the show schedule.
For her efforts, Marlee has won a three-day family pass to the show, as well as some ride tickets and a ribbon.
Marlee said she spent two lessons at Lobly Arts’ after school art program creating the drawing of a vegie garden to capture the show’s theme of “homegrown and homemade”.
“I’ve never been to the show – I’m looking forward to it,” she said.
Warrnambool Agricultural Society manager Charles Hoddinott said the competition had been a good way to create interest in the upcoming show and get children from schools across the region involved.
The 163rd annual Warrnambool Show is on from October 28-30.
