1st ‘Draw my Dreams’ Drawing Competition

We believe all children deserve a chance to dream. The Convention on the Rights of the Child states that children everywhere are entitled with the right to education, health, survival and play so that they can pursue their dreams. Yet, for children in developing countries, such basic rights are unattainable luxuries. Meanwhile, poverty and inequality put dream out of reach for many.

Theme
Plan International Hong Kong is calling for students from kindergartens and primary schools to unleash creativity and talent through drawing. Participants can have a chance to express and share their dreams with children in developing countries. The winning entries will be exhibited at the Donate a Pencil Campaign in October together with the artworks created by children living in developing countries. To raise awareness of challenges faced by children living in developing world, schools are invited to organise screenings and put up display panels using materials provided.
