A Greener World
– by Rebecca Muscat
My Stabilo Experience
Our School has been focusing a lot on helping the environment, discussing global warming and other environmental issues. One day, during art, Ms. Alison told all the students about a drawing competition organized by Stabilo. The theme of the competition was the environment and ways of how we can look after it. The project was called ‘A Greener World’.
I took part in the Stabilo green drawing competition, along with many of my friends from the whole school. We all drew pictures giving our ideas and visions of a greener world. My drawing was chosen as the winner from my school. J
A prize-giving event, where Trevor Zahra awarded the prizes to the winners was held on Saturday 5th February 2011 at the Coastline Hotel. Trevor Zahra awarded the token prizes consisting of a STABILO GREEN pack to the winners of every school.
I was not the only girl to win a prize. There were the winning children from other different schools inMaltaand Gozo. At the event there were various slideshows about the Stabilo products and how they are made. One of the slideshows was about how paper is produced. This made me very conscious not to waste paper. After the slideshows Trevor Zahra made a short speech, and then he gave out the prizes. We each got a lovely file with Stabilo’s new items.
The prize consisted of a packet of 24 green colours, a 12 pack of chunky colours, a pencil and a certificate. I was very happy when I got my prize. However, I was even happier when I found out that Ms .Cremona came to see me. It was a special day which I will never forget!!!
