School Holiday Drawing Competition - It’s Time to Get Out the Crayons

Ogo Rotorua


Kids love to draw and with all their spare time these school holidays you could put their skills to good use! We have partnered up with some the best Rotorua family attractions and have seven family escapes to giveaway.

How do you enter? Get the kids to draw one of the seven listed activities, then load a photo of it up on our site using the link below. It’s as easy as that! The drawings don’t have to Picasso standard either as the winners are drawn randomly from all the valid entries.  Kids (12 and under) can also enter more than one category so don’t be shy in giving them a good challenge.

The categories:

  • Amazeme
    A 1.4km hedge maze for kids to navigate through.
  • Rainbow springs
    A nature park where kids can get up close and personal with a range of animals.
  • Agrodome
    A unique farm experience for the whole family.
  • Duck tours
    New Zealand’s only vehicle that drives on both land and water.
  • Agroventures
    Five iconic adventure activities including a Bungy, a sky swing, a jet sprint experience, a wind tunnel and a human powered monorail racetrack.
  • OGO Rotorua
    A big inflatable ball that you can roll around in (otherwise known as a Zorb).
  • Mountain Bike Rotorua
    Biking through the famous Redwood Forrest


The Prize (seven to be won):

  • One night’s accommodation at Holiday Inn Rotorua for two adults and two children
  • Buffet breakfast for two adults and two children at Chapman’s Restaurant
  • A family pass for the attraction depicted in the drawing

Good luck!

The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, August 7, 2016. The winners will be announced on August 8, 2016, via email and on on our Facebook page. The competition is open to entrants 12 years old or younger. One entry per category per child.
