Children's Opportunity: International Children's Painting Competition "Wasting Our Food is Wasting Our Planet"

The United Nations Environment Programme is once again hosting International Children's Painting Competition. According to UNEP:

The International Children’s Painting Competition (ICPC) on the Environment is organized every year by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Japan-based Foundation for Global Peace and Environment (FGPE), Bayer and Nikon Corporation. Some 3 million entries from children in more than 150 countries have been received since the competition’s inception in 1991.
UNEP’s Regional for Office of North America in partnership with Bayer Corporation has launched the 23rd annual International Children's Painting Competition (ICPC) for the 2013-2014 school year. We are calling for entries to all six to 14- year-olds in the United States and Canada to express their creativity and environmental awareness by participating in this year’s competition. 
The theme is “Wasting Our Food is Wasting Our Planet.” The Students are expected to focus on the responsibility we all have in reducing the enormous amount of food that is lost or wasted each year worldwide. Please look at the attached brochure for the entry requirements and the press release for more information. 

All entries must be submitted by March 15, 2013.  Click here for more details!
