Invitation to children to take part in World Bee Day 2020 drawing/painting competition

On 20 May, we will mark the ‘World Bee Day’, which was initiated by Slovenia and declared by the United Nations in 2017 to raise awareness of the crucial role of bees and other pollinators in sustaining our natural environment and food security. 

We invite children in Israel up to 10 years old to help us celebrate by participating in a drawing/painting competition entitled "Bees – My Friends".

To take part in the competition, please submit one scan or photo of the drawing or painting, all techniques are allowed, together with your name, age and title of the painting/drawing by emailing it to sloembassy.telaviv@gov.si Please include the permission to publish the work on our website and social media. The competition is open until 19 May 2020. All the works will be exhibited at the Embassy, so please don't forget to send us the original also by post!

Authors of the best three images, chosen by a panel of judges, will be announced on the World Bee Day on 20 May 2020 on our Facebook and Twitter pages "Slovenia in Israel". The winners will receive sweet awards by mail.
