To mark the start of NAIDOC Week, the winners of an art competition among schools has been announced.
The Riverina Local Land Services hosted the inaugural Reconciliation Artwork competition as one way to show their commitment to working with Indigenous Australians.
Mount Austin High School's piece took out the overall winner award, while Temora High School and Narrandera High School received commendations.
Rob Kelly from Riverina LLS said the decision came down to which artworks were able to tell their story the best without words.
The pieces will be on display at the E3 Art space, which will be open from 10am to 3pm until July 10.
Wiradjuri and First Nations community members will be able to learn how to capture life stories through different mediums, including podcasts.
Wagga mayor Greg Conkey said the draft plan clearly demonstrates council's commitment towards a better and stronger future with the local Wiradjuri community and all First Nations Peoples.
"It outlines how council will play its part in recognising Wiradjuri culture and heritage, how we will work to increase employment and business opportunities, and how we will ensure we build relationships based on respect and transparency with our community," he said.
The draft plan is on public exhibition until July 10. View the document and make a submission online at wagga.nsw.gov.au/public.
NAIDOC Week events are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
