Primary and secondary school students interested in joining the Jockey Club Student Drawing Competition of the Hong Kong Flower Show 2013 are invited to enrol through their schools by February 6 (Wednesday).
The competition is organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD). It will be held on March 15 (Friday) from 9am to noon at Victoria Park.
The competition will feature students' impressive drawings of exquisite flowers and unique garden displays in the showground with a view to enhancing awareness of conserving plants and the natural environment.
The theme of this year's drawing competition is "Kaleidoscope of Spring". Participants may draw or paint any floral exhibits or garden displays in the showground to illustrate the theme.
The competition will be conducted in four categories: Junior Section in Primary School (Primary One to Primary Three), Senior Section in Primary School (Primary Four to Primary Six), Junior Section in Secondary School (Form One to Form Three) and Senior Section in Secondary School (Form Four to Form Six).
Each category will have a champion, a first runner-up and a second runner-up, as well as 10 highly commended and 15 certificate of merit winners.
Winning entries by the champions, the first and second runners-up and those highly commended will be exhibited in the showground at Victoria Park from March 16 to 24. All winning entries will then be displayed at the Kowloon Park Arcade and also be available for viewing at the LCSD webpage in May 2013.
