Passionate Minecraft enthusiasts from around the region took part in last year's workshops.

SOME of the sharpest little minds across the region will unite in the coming days with the purpose of flexing their creative abilities and making new like-minded friends. 

 Children aged between six and 16 living in Tablelands Regional Council or the Mareeba, Etheridge, Cassowary Coast and Douglas Shires have until today to enter a Minecraft competition in which 10 winners will be handpicked to attend a workshop and enjoy free overnight accommodation in Cairns on May 15. 

 “The RASN roadshow regional workshop and this particular competition has been designed as a fun and creative way for children from Far North Queensland to network and show their skills and passion for Minecraft,” Cairns Regional Council event spokesperson Mark Edwards said. 

“Very simply the workshop is an opportunity for children to explore and game play and is a light and fun way to network. 

 “Deadlines close today. We encourage children who live in the mentioned Shires and Councils in the competition catchment to submit an entry. 

“From there, who knows, they may just win a free night’s accommodation in Cairns and access to a Minecraft workshop at Tanks Art Centre where they can make new friends and demonstrate their creative abilities.” 

 Cairns Council said the Minecraft competition was developed to “stimulate ideas and discussion with young people about urban design; architecture; public space and art as part of the annual children’s festival.” 

Entries close today with successful applicants emailed after that date. For more information about the event or how to enter visit wwwcairnsminecraft.com.
