Amila gets children painting and the creative juices flowing
In a bid to promote creativity in children, Promasidor has launched its Amila Painting Challenge in about 200 primary schools across 20 local government areas in Lagos.
An art teacher in each of the selected schools will conduct a general painting competition among the pupils of the school to determine the 10 best that will participate on the Amila Day, from where an overall best winner will emerge to represent the school at each local government level.
“So far we have seen lots of beautiful paintings that would make your mouth open. The competition has really brought out the creativity in children. You can see the excitement when painting and how other kids are wishing they were selected for the competition. It has been fun, fun and fun for the kids,” says Miss Feyisayo Aliu of the Children of Africa Project.
The winners from the other participating schools will move on to the second stage of the competition which will be held at each local government. Mrs. Abiola Inawo, Dairy Category Manager Promasidor, commented that it would encourage schools to put more attention on arts and also that the competition will be in three stages. “The first stage is at the school level where pupils will paint any art of their choice and the winner will represent the school at the local government area for the second stage. At the second stage, the overall winner from the local government level will get a branded Amila Bicycle and Promasidor goodie bags,” Inawo said.
The 20 finalists at the local government level will compete for the overall winner, who will walk away with N250,000, 1st runner up N150,000 and the 2nd runner up N100,000, while there will be consolation prizes of N30,000 each for the other 17 contestants.
