Wagga's annual Respect Day has encouraged students and adults alike to get creative.
The community was encouraged to don purple and yellow on Wednesday to mark the event, an initiative of long-term community organisation Respect Awareness.
The day raises awareness of the concept of respect and reminds school students and adults alike of how best to treat one another.
This year, a competition was held to get students thinking about respect with public and private schools encouraged to participate.
Sturt Public School were the big winners, with Claire Sutton and Emma Leonard taking out first and second respectively in a colouring in competition for years 3 and 4.
Years 5 and 6 were encouraged to show off their artistic talents, with a poem by Sturt's Lucy Anderson taking out first place and Yusen Li of Wagga Christian College in second.
A cartoon strip by Sturt's Archie Keough depicting respect through the metaphor of planting a seed and watching it grow was given a special commendation.
Kooringal High School student Nate Whiticker created a video with examples of showing respect to take out the high school category.
Adults were invited to participate in their own category, with Saba Nabi winning the prize with a written piece on her experiences as a migrant.
