19th Annual Children's Mangrove Calendar Art Contest
Friday, March 15, 2019, 11:59pm
The Mangrove Action Project (MAP) invites all school children aged 6 -16 years from tropical and sub-tropical nations, to create art telling us “why mangroves are important to my community and me?” Non-profit organizations, NGOs, schools, teachers, and other groups are invited to help organize local calendar contests and help MAP to get students involved. We must receive the art work in MAP's office by March 15th.
Selected winners will be published in the 2020 calendar to be distributed internationally to raise awareness of mangrove forest ecology. This colorful calendar has increased in popularity since its first publication in 2002. The 2020 calendar is our 19th edition. We would like to invite children from your country to join in this fantastic creative and educational competition. It is an opportunity for the younger generation to learn about the vital role Mangroves play in the lives of coastal communities and marine life around the world whilst letting them explore their imagination and have fun when creating their pieces of art.
This contest aims to promote appreciation and awareness of mangrove forests and communities, while encouraging and listening to creative voices of children living in mangrove regions.
Our website includes contest information and rules in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Thai, Burmese, Vietnamese, Malagasy, and Indonesian.
