Children’s Day 2021 Competition

For Children’s Day 2021 we ran a competition for children to create a friend for TOCK from items you would normally throw away.

This year’s winner was a creative caterpillar made from an old sock and recycled paper.

TOCK has lots of information, fun facts, crafts, activities and education resources on his website so please take a look around whilst you are here. We are adding new content and activities regularly so please come back soon.

Rules/terms and prizes for the Children's Day Friend for TOCK Competition


The Children's Day Friend for TOCK Competition will be open for entries all weekend 6th and 7th March 2021.

Entries are only open to children living in NZ and under the age of 12. Entries must be made by the child with minimal adult assistance.

There will be a special gift for the first entry so get your entry in quickly and the winner will get a free signed copy of TOCK Saves the Earth

Although you are welcome to support entries by voting on your favourite pictures, the winning entry for this competition will be chosen by The TOCK Team.

This is a themed competition with the theme being 'A Friend for TOCK'. Make a friend for TOCK out of items that would normally be thrown away as TOCK loves waste reduction and recycling. The more creative the better. Once you have made your creation, take a photo and upload it along with a title and short description.

Full credit will be given to contributors but no personal information will be shared publicly without permission.

TOCK may ask if entries could be shared to help spread the word about TOCK and the amazing work of The TOCK Team (you) but will always get your permission first.

Please respect the privacy of others and do not copy or share their work without their permission.


This competition closes on 7th March 2021 and we will announce the winner by the 10th March 2021. The winner will be selected by The TOCK Team and the first entry will also receive a special gift just of inspiring others to join in.

Remember TOCK thinks everybody is a winner so please join in just for the fun and keep your eyes open for other competitions.
