We are going to be sharing the results and winners of our essay competition very soon, but before we do that, we have a new activity to announce!
We are holding a collage competition in Pune. This will be similar to our Best Out of Waste competition, as participants are invited to create a piece of collage art using waste materials.
While the Best Out of Waste competition aimed to demonstrate that much of what we throw away can be used in a practical and useful way, this competition is to demonstrate that art and beauty can also be found in the most unexpected places, and it is possible to create something special out of what people were throwing away.
After the competition is over, we will be arranging an exhibit to show off as many of the entries as we can. This is so the children involved can compare and share ideas, and will encourage cooperation and lateral thinking. It will also be a great experience for them to see their art in a display.
Here are the regulations of the competition:
- For 5th to 7th std (junior group), the collages can be on any topic the participant wants, from sports to animals or anything between.
- For 8th To 10th std (senior group), the collages should feature a landscape scene.
- Collages should be on standard A4 paper/card.
- We would like children to complete their collages over Diwali holidays. The entries will then be collected when school resumes.
We can’t wait to see what the participants create. If you want any further information, don’t hesitate to contact us – you can email the event organiser, our E4S India Country Manager Suresh, on suresh[at]nektarinanonprofit[dot]com
