Competitions update for schools

Kia ora koutou,

Thank you Movin’March schools, students, parents and whānau for supporting and participating in Movin’March 2020. Here’s an update about competitions and how you can give us your feedback.

Update on competitions

The WOW Passport competition deadline has been extended to Friday 5 June. Both complete and incomplete WOW passports are eligible to go in the draw to win one of 12 x $400 My Ride vouchers. Schools or families can send passports direct to Movin’March to:

Make sure the child's and school’s name is on the back of the WOW passport or Art Challenge entry.

The Art Challenge competition has been extended to Friday 5 June. Templates are downloadable here and completed entries must be sent in the post to the address above or scanned and emailed to There are district and regional prizes to be won.

The Movin’Minds mini-movie/slideshow competition has been extended to Friday 5 June Year 4-8 students are welcome to complete and submit their work from home here. We have tips on the website page to help parents guide children if they’re interested.

Please let us know if you are unable to meet these deadlines.

If you’ve already sent in passports/art challenge entries

Anything sent prior to lockdown is safely in the mailbag. I’ll be contacting your school to let you know I have received yours over the next few days. Anything sent after lockdown is still being safely collected and I won’t be able to confirm receipt until later in June when our offices re-open.

New timeline for announcing Movin’March winners and updated Terms & Conditions

We will need a maximum of 19 working days before we can announce the winners for our 3 x Movin’March competitions (WOW Passport Challenge, Art Challenge and Movin’Minds). We will announce these winners no later than Monday 6 July. We hope to get results to schools and families sooner, but need to allow for unforeseen delays given the staggered nature of services re-opening and operating under Alert Level 2. Our Terms and Conditions will be updated on our website soon.
