The art competition is an annual event that is organised by the Energy Agency in conjunction with South Ayrshire Council primary schools. The theme of the competition is “Save Energy in the Home” and entrants are invited to produce a piece of artwork to reflect this message.
Provost Winifred Sloan said: “The artwork produced by the children is outstanding, it is colourful and sends out a clear message that it is important for all of us to save energy in our homes.
“All the children have put a lot of time and effort into creating their entries, and it is very clear that the young people are well informed about how to save energy and protect our environment. I would like to thank every child who entered the competition and congratulate the young artists who were runners up or prize winners.
“My Energy Agency calendar will be on display in my office during 2009 and I am sure that visitors to my office will enjoy looking at it.”
Thirteen winning entries have been selected, one for each month of the year and one for the front cover of the calendar. Courtesy of the Council each of these winners will be able to swim for free at one of the Council’s pools during the month of September.
Provost Sloan presented each winner and runner up with a certificate and an Energy Agency mug and recycleable bag of goodies.
The local Councillors who represent the area of the school that each winner or runner up attends were invited to the ceremony and the children presented each of them with a copy of the 2009 calendar.
Later this year the calendars will be distributed and displayed in a variety of public buildings and Council offices.
