Colourful works of art by young peace lovers

Visitors admiring the selected entries on display during the Colours of Peace event in Beach Sreet, George Town.

VISITORS who took part in the car-free day event were drawn to the entries of a colouring contest themed ‘Colours of Peace’ in Beach Street, Penang.

Many of them could be seen admiring the drawings of three people in traditional costumes, which represented the country’s main ethnic groups.

Those on display were chosen from over 2,000 entries coloured by children aged between seven and 12.

Each entry also came with a message on peace.

The contest was organised by Junior Chamber International (JCI) Malaysia Area Peninsular North.

JCI senator Leow Chan Juin said the campaign was aimed at creating self-awareness and a commitment towards building a peaceful community.

“We wish to drive home messages on the importance of maintaining peace and ways to achieve it,” Leow added.

He said this in his speech during the launching of the contest on Sunday.

At the event, Penang Island City Council mayor Datuk Maimunah Mohd Sharif also endorsed JCI Nibong Tebal charter president Eric Beh as a ‘Waste Separation At Source’ ambassador.

She also thanked 18 JCI chapters for taking the lead in organising various youth-related activities.

Also present was Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim.
