For the third consecutive year, the National Plan commission, which addresses stray dogs issues, organizes a drawing contest for children.
The goal of this drawing contest “Love your dog 2021” is to continue to raise awareness, especially among children, regarding the care of their pets. Raising awareness among children is essential for them to be responsible pet owners in the future.
Children may choose among four themes for this contest. It will be ideal if they incorporate topics of the dog law in their drawing. Only one drawing per participant is permitted. The four themes are:
- Bathe your dog;
- Play with your dog;
- Your dog as part of your family;
- Dog on a leash.
The drawing must be original, creative, and drawn by the child.
Who can participate
Participation is free and is only open for primary school students.
If your child does not receive the participation form at their school, you may download it from www.specialprojectsaruba.org. The reason why this year the kindergartens will not participate is that of all the winning drawings, Post Aruba N.V. will choose a drawing of each theme as a stamp of Aruba for 2022.
One can submit the participation form until September 23, 2021, at the nearest MFA or mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. On World Animal Day, October 4, the committee will announce the four drawings as stamps for 2022. The winners of each school class will receive their prizes. The committee encourages children to participate in this contest for it to, once again, be successful.
