Colgate Palmolive’s “My Bright Smile” Global Art Contest has been providing children across the globe a platform to showcase their creativity and express their artistic thoughts. It has been seventeen years that the unique Global Art Contest is held under the umbrella of Colgate’s Oral Health Education Peogram, “Bright Smiles, Bright futures”. The idea is not only to give a forum for children to polish their inner talent, but also educate them the benefits of good oral care.
This year, the “My Bright Smile” Global Art Contest received an overwhelming response from children across Pakistan with 115,595 entries from schools nationwide. Participants, aged 6 to 9 were invited to participate to show their artsy skills. On 23rd May 2017, an exhibition displaying several shortlisted candidates was held at Alliance Francaise Art Gallery in Karachi, in which prizes were distributed to the 100 best entries and 12 lucky winners were selected for their extraordinary pieces of original art.
It was such a great feeling to see young kids making their names for the future artists of Pakistan 🇵🇰. We must appreciate and encourage these young talented kids, let’s give them a pat on the back; if we don’t then who else will?
