<p>The KAITIAKI2SHARE competition is back in 2021 encouraging students of all ages to send in great ideas for how we can all care for creation (people and the environment).</p>

The KAITIAKI2SHARE competition started in 2020 and has become an annual competition after the success of the inaugural year and also in light of the present state of the world in which we live.

The task is to provide an original idea on how we can all CARE FOR GOD’s 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 either:

  • Write a poem

  • Draw a piece of art or a diagram

  • Create a video

  • Craft a story; or

  • Design a plan

However students can be as creative as they like and convey their idea in their own unique way. The theme of Caritas resources for 2021 is A NEW WAY FORWARD as we all come to terms with how we respond to current challenges to do with the pandemic and issues such as climate change. Entries can be sent to and students/teachers will need to complete the super quick entry application below to provide details including name, year level, school and e-mail address.

Entries must be submitted by Friday 21st of May.

Winners will receive a share of the prize money and all finalists will have a native tree planted on their behalf in their region of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Once again, 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.
