HA NOI (VNS)— An eighth grader from the Ha Noi-based Doan Thi Diem Secondary High School, Ngo Hai Anh, grabbed first prize in the Eco Picture Diary Contest 2013, earning her the shot at taking part in the Global Award Ceremony in Paris, France, late this year.
Launched globally by Panasonic Corporation in 2009, the third contest in Viet Nam drew participation from 530 students from primary schools in Ha Noi and central Quang Nam Province.
The theme of the third contest focused on practical solutions to promoting green living, such as organising "green journeys" with friends, using public and green means of transport, planting trees, saving electricity, water and reusing materials.
Besides paper and paint, Anh used cuttings, cotton, and fabric scraps for her winning work. The five-day diary tells of environmental protection activities she is involved in at home, school and in public life, including eschewing plastic bags, saving water and energy, as well as planting trees.
"The quality of the submissions is higher in both content and drawing, with various materials and art techniques utilised to express the ideas. It shows that students have paid more intention to environmental protection and been aware of how to preserve the environment," Wakita Shinichi, general director of Panasonic Viet Nam.
