Art competition a big hit
THE 17th Subang Jaya Children’s Art Competition is expected to be a big hit among the children.
Organisers are hoping to get at least 500 participants.
Due to the overwhelming response from participants in previous years, the organisers have also opened the competition to children who are not residing in Subang Jaya.
The annual event is organised by Rukun Tetangga USJ2 and USJ6 with Petronas, Summit and the Fire and Rescue Services Department as co-sponsors.
Organising chairman Ang How Chuan said the event would be held at noon on Oct 6 at the Summit Subang in USJ1.
He said based on feedback from past competitions, there were many children living outside Subang Jaya who were also interested in participating.
“I hope parents who live outside Subang Jaya will take advantage of this year’s event by enrolling their children for the competition that will be held next month.
“Certainly, the participation of children from outside Subang Jaya will add more colour to the event,’’ he said
Ang said the theme of this year’s art competition “Our Firemen, Our Hero”, was carefully chosed in line with the RTs objective of promoting community togetherness.
He said they expected the children to use their creativity to come up with drawings that would reflect the role of firemen as their heroes.
“This will encourage them to think about the work of a fireman as well as to further appreciate the contribution of firemen in the community.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh, who commended the RT for organising the annual art competition, said the event was one of the major programmes in the constituency.
She said the RT had done a great job and hoped they would continue to organise the event in the future.
“I would also like to thank the sponsors of this event as it will not be successful without their strong backing,” she said.
