Prize-giving ceremony held for over 70 children’s works of art

Yesterday, as usual at this time of year, the ULMA Group’s offices became the venue for an awards event that gave members and employees of ULMA’s different business units the chance to enjoy works of art created by their children and see them rewarded.

The competition, held for the sixth year running, was much more than a traditional painting contest this time, as competitors were asked to spend more time and resources on their entries, which surprised the judges in both quantity and imagination.

This year’s handicrafts competition focused on recycling and reusing everyday items, and the result was a tremendous display of talent. The kids sent in more than 70 works that showed great skill and enthusiasm for recycling, extending the lifetime of a variety of plastic, paper, cardboard and metal objects and creating some genuine works of art along the way.

The families were surprised and delighted to see their entries on show, and the authors were each given a ceramic piggy bank together with a set of paints to decorate it and carry on practising their skills. All the children who took part in the competition received this prize, presented in an original recycled newspaper gift-wrap, and the two winning contestants were also awarded a bicycle by ULMA Group Chairman Raúl García, following what was a difficult selection process by the members of the Communication Committee.

The kids admitted they had thoroughly enjoyed creating their entries and had involved the whole family in helping them find the materials to work on, and so there is a good chance that Recycling will also be the theme of next year's competition also.
