KUALA LUMPUR: The fun-filled Kuntum-Dutch Lady colouring contest is back.
The event, which will kick off on April 20 at Space U8 in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, will be a platform to nurture creativity and enrich the learning experience of young children.
Star Publications (M) Bhd deputy general manager Nicola Tiong said the well-received educational magazine had been playing a pivotal role in educating and entertaining young children for over 30 years.
“Apart from the learning benefits the magazine offers, we also organise healthy activities to help instil self-confidence in children while enhancing their growing-up experience,” she said during the event launch at SK Bandar Baru Seri Petaling 2 here yesterday.
She added that the event would also encourage children to express themselves through art, while promoting unity and harmony among various races and backgrounds.
The contest is organised by Kuntum, with Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad (DLMI) as the main sponsor. It has entered its second year.
DLMI marketing manager Ramjeet Kaur Virik said their partnership with Kuntum was based on the common belief that education played a critical role in a child’s growth and development.
The colouring contest will be divided into two categories, with Category A for children aged seven to nine years old, and Category B for children aged 10 to 12 years old.
Participants stand to win attractive cash prizes, hampers and a one-year Kuntum subscription. The top three schools with the highest number of participants in each category (with a minimum number of 50 entries) will also get prizes.
The registration form is available on the Kuntum website at ekuntum.com.my. Entry is free.
The contest will also be held at Penang Times Square on June 22, Kelantan Trade Centre in Kota Baru on Sept 28 and Stadium Darul Aman in Alor Setar on Oct 26.
