The artwork of two creative primary school students are now showcased on each side of a new Town of Port Hedland rubbish truck.

Myah Wuruki, 12, of St Cecilia’s Catholic Primary School, and Mason Cooper, 12, of Port Hedland Primary School, were the winners among hundreds of entrants across six primary schools in the town.

The competition ran in November, with the theme “tell us what Port Hedland means to you”.

Both winners felt very proud to have their artwork showcased throughout the community.

The judges — Town of Port Hedland Mayor Camilo Blanco and Town of Port Hedland waste operations manager Christopher Adekunle — said it was great to receive so many entries.

“Myah’s work is a stunning display of so many elements that represent Port Hedland,” Mr Blanco said. “The detail and creativity in her illustration blew the judges away.

“Mason’s illustration caught our eye because of the vibrant colours he used to show the Port Hedland sunset over Cemetery Beach.”
