The purpose of the contest “was to awaken responsibility for the environment through children’s actions, simple gestures that anyone can make.” Through art expressions it sought to make the natural environment a better place to live in. Becoming aware of the environmental problems “around our living place, and finding simple and efficient solutions” were other goals the contest pursued.
