Territory and Municipal Services have announced the winners of their ACTION Buses drawing competition with Ayami Starke taking out top honours.:

“The judges felt that Ayami’s drawing best captured this year’s theme of Draw for the future – the ultimate environmentally-friendly bus. We are very excited to see Ayami’s concept of Canberra’s sustainable future on the back of one of our buses soon,” Mr Roncon said.

“This year’s entrants showed great creativity and some very imaginative concepts for environmentally-friendly bus options, including a bus powered by passenger pedal power and another fuelled by cooking oil.

Other winners were:

    • Andy Dunn, under 4 years of age
    • Tayla Abbott, between 5 and 6 years of age
    • Luke Palmer, between 7 and 8 years of age
    • Ivy Prosser, between 9 and 10 years of age
    • Aisha Bottrill, between 11 and 13 years of age
    • Ayami Starke, overall winner.

What’s Your opinion?

Looks like the relentless ‘green’ indoctrination in our school system is coming up with results!

Yeah, what’s not to love about pollution?

Yeah but CO2 is not pollution remember that or do you believe the spin.

It’s great to see that the Cater-Piller has wi-fi. Hopefully it is free.

Nice straw man.

Not supporting the green indoctrination of our school children doesn’t equate to me being pro pollution.

There is always some FUD to scare the kiddies, my generation was CFC’s and holes in the ozone layer.. whatever best appeals to a child’s fear.

There are ways to teach children about the environment and being environmentally responsible without manipulating them.

I like the addition of the pin wheels, highlighting the delicate balance between form and function.

Gee, the shoving of green propaganda down the throats of schoolkids is working. A pity they’re not teaching spelling anymore (“inshore”).

Ayami is eleven years old and has lots of time to learn how to spell ensure (or insure). At least this shows it was the student’s own work. There is clearly imagination and original thought behind this illustration.

I agree. From now on we should teach the children that there is much ore fun involved raping the Earth than caring for it.

Nice allusion to rising sea levels in the ‘Why is sustainability important to you?’ 😉

I wonder if it converts to a butterfly when necessary? The detail is impressive; note the antennae allow for free wifi. It’s great that it will be on the back of a bus too.

Who needs wifi when you have windmills and fish wind socks, and a veggie patch to tend to. Love it.

‘Wheels generate Electricity’. sounds more like electrified rail
Also the solar panels on the roof are kinda small, looking much more like a pantograph

I love the red bold Embargo comment designed to catch your attention, with an incorrect date, when the correct date is located on the line above.
