Tiny art could win big

COFFS Coast high school students are being invited to create tiny artworks that will educate pub and club go-ers about problem gambling.

The Draw The Line on Problem Gambling competition was launched late last week in a bid to create public awareness about the issue. All residents aged 14 to 16 are challenged to create an artwork the size of an average drink coaster - just 95mm by 95mm - that raises awareness about problem gambling.

The North Coast region winner will receive an 8G iPod Touch, with the NSW winner receiving a state-of-the-art digital camera.

The overall winner will also have his/her design printed onto 100,000 coasters to be used in pubs and clubs throughout the state.
