The art contest 2011 ” Řeka očima dítěte “

Another art contest ” Řeka očima dítěte” (The river through the eyes of a child) was organized in 2011 in the Czech Republic. The participants of the contest were four-grade students of primary schools in the Moravian-Silesian Region who represented the following schools:

– Základní škola and mateřská Šenov in Nový Jičín

– Základní škola and mateřská škola Žabeň

– Základní škola and mateřská škola Vřesina

– Základní škola Ostrava-Petřkovice

– Základní škola and mateřská škola Bohumín

The jury, chaired by the graphic artist, Mrs. Monika Moderska, evaluated 102 entries. Twelve selected works were used to create the ICPO calendar for 2012. In addition, five works were awarded honorary mentions.

The award ceremony was held on 27 September 2011 in the conference room of the Hotel Harmony Club in Ostrava. All participants received books, diplomas, the 2012 calendar as well as promotional gifts of the ICPO. Together with the children we attended a lecture about the richness of the flora and fauna on the scenic border stretch of the Odra River that upon our invitation was delivered by Mr. Jiří Šuhaj.

We hope that the children had a nice time in our company and with a sweet snack. We are pleased the students liked the calendar with the winning works!
