Kolkata, Apr 22 (IBNS): The Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry on Saturday organised the fifth edition of its “Sit and Draw Competition 2017” for school children, on the occasion of Earth Day, at The Birla Industrial & Technological Museum (BITM).
This year’s theme is “Teach for the Green Planet” as part of efforts to promote consciousness of the importance of a sustainable natural environment. Mr. Animesh Nandi (gold medallist from Academy of Fine Arts) was the judge of the competition.
Sutanu Ghosh, President, The Bengal Chamber, said, “Corporate life demands that we always stay busy. In the midst of our luxuries and comforts, we forget the harm we do to nature. The world has been tremendously affected by global warming; this climate change is one of the effects. In order to make the children aware of this current situation, The Bengal Chamber has been taking the initiative for the last five years so that some measures can be taken to save this Earth.”
Students of many schools across the city have taken part in the competition from the age group of five to ten years.
The competition has been conducted in two different groups. The topic for students of Group A (5-7 years) was Green Earth, Clean Earth; for Group B (8-10 years) it was Global Warming.
Around 150 students from La Martiniere, Bidya Bharati Mominpur, Heritage, Sri Sri Academy, Shri Shikshayatan School, The Future Foundation School, Mahadevi Birla World Academy, among others have taken part in the competition.
20-30 selected drawings by the participants will be given the certificate of the appreciation in the coming Tenth Edition of Annual Environment & Energy Conclave.
