KAITIAKI2SHARE is a new competition in 2020 encouraging students of all ages to send in great ideas for how we can all care for creation (people and the environment).

The KAITIAKI2SHARE competition is new in 2020 and links in with the week 5 lesson activity in Caritas 2020 online resource materials you can access for Lent this year.

The task is to provide an original idea on how we can all CARE FOR CREATION. Creation, of course, is all-encompassing and involves both people and the environment.

All students can enter from Y1-Y13 and they have the flexibility of choosing what medium suits them to submit their entry. We have suggested that they may choose to:

  • Write a poem
  • Draw a piece of art or a diagram
  • Create a video
  • Craft a story
  • Design a plan

However, students can be as creative as they like and convey their idea in their own unique way. Entries can be sent to and students will need to pass on their name, year level, school and email address.

Entries must be submitted by May 15.

All finalists will have a native tree planted somewhere in New Zealand with a label attached with their name (and receive a certificate card). Winners will receive a share of $400 prize money to help them make their creative idea a reality.

In 2020, Caritas has endeavoured to minimise our impact on the planet, so we've double-sided our competition posters. Please let us know if you want us to send you extra posters for the KAITIAKI2SHARE creative idea competition.
