Dabur Bangladesh and The Daily Star organise online art competition for kids
Encouraging creativity amongst school children who are staying at home for more than a year now, The Daily Star and Dabur Red Toothpaste jointly organised the second season of "Ghorer Eide Ronger Chhite", an online art competition for children, recently.
The young participants were asked to draw how Eid-Ul-Fitr would be amidst the global pandemic. 30 different schools were contacted for the competition. The organisers received over 500 submissions from children across the country. The artworks were sorted out into Category A (4-6 years old), Category B (7-10 years old), and Category C (11-13 years old). For Category A, the second runner-up was Asiya Bint Ehtesham, the first runner-up was Zulkar Nine Ahamed, and the champion was Anaya Zakira Hossain. Khandaker Arafat Ahmed was the second runner up in Category B, while Naira Ahmed Chowdhury was the first runner-up and Junairah Tasmeekh was the champion. For Category C, the second runner-up was Preeyota Pervez, the first runner-up was Anisha Santoni, and the champion was Aayan Zahin Hossain.
Talat Rahim, Head of Marketing, Dabur Bangladesh, said that Dabur looks to promote a healthy lifestyle, and their purpose in this event was to ensure that children are engaged in activities that allow them to explore their imagination, in these unprecedented times.
Md Tajdin Hassan, Chief Strategy and Digital Transformation Officer of The Daily Star also shared his thoughts. He said, "The Daily Star has been organising multiple youth-centric activities over the last few years, starting from The Daily Star O & A Level Awards to Rise High Bangladesh, the country's first export-idea based competition for the youth. This art competition was an extension of the same effort."
The winning submissions from each category of the competition were showcased on the official Facebook pages of The Daily Star and Dabur Bangladesh, with the participants' photos.
