KOHIMA, MARCH 8

KEEPING up with its commitment to social cause, Amway Opportunity Foundation (AOF) today organized ‘Nanhe Chitrakaar’, a pan India annual painting competition for children, in the office premises of Amway India, Kohima division.
Around fifty children, including 10 special children with low vision took part in the competition, which was held on the theme ‘Wildlife & Environment’ under two categories- 4-7 years of age and 8-12 years of age groups. State award winning artist, Shesalu Tenenu was the judge of the competition.
The painting competition elicited enthusiastic response from children from diverse backgrounds. The participants captured their imagination and understandings of wild life and green environment, which ran as the leitmotif of the competition, on canvas with a riot of colours.
In the 4-7 age group, Vimesono, Khetan and Kevizeto were adjudged as the first, second and third place winners respectively while in the 8-12 years group, B. Tsoiniu Shiu was declared the winner and Imkonglemla and Sarah were adjudged the second and third respectively. The winners were awarded with Nanhe Chitrakaar 2014 trophies and certificates.
AOF members informed that the central idea behind the painting competition is to instil a spirit of “brotherhood” and to foster a bond of partnership among normal children and the less privileged children. ‘Nanhe Chitrakaar’ is said to be organized in as many as 40 locations across India this year.
The AOF will be sending the best three paintings in each category to Amway Corporation, Ada (USA) and the winning paintings will adorn the walls of the Amway offices along with family portrait of the winners. AOF members also informed that the winning paintings will also be printed in greeting cards and will be auctioned.
