July 2011 - South Africa’s young talent is showcased in Collect-a-Can’s Artistic Expression Competition

South Africans can be proud of the artistic talent displayed by their youth today. This talent was apparent when it came to judging Collect-a-Can’s 2011 Artistic Expression Competition, a competition that encouraged primary and high school learners to use their creative skills to interpret the theme “I CAN make a difference to the future by recycling cans today” through either a drawing, painting, sculpture, creative writing or any other creative means. “Creativity is all about inventing, experimenting and having fun,” says Annie Tsima, Managing Director of Collect-a-Can. “We like to encourage learners to enjoy this creative process whilst at the same time taking pride in the fact that their artwork is conveying a pertinent message about the importance of recycling.” The competition closed at the end of May and after some tough deliberations the judges selected three winners in both a junior and senior category.

Collect-a-Can are delighted to announce the winners of the Artistic Expression Competition 2011 as follows:

In Category 1, for Grade 0 to 7 learners, Tshepo Mngomezulu and Jabu Mhlanga from Lungisani Primary School in Gauteng took the first and second prizes of R1000 and R500 respectively for their coloured pencil sketches of the can recycling process. Third prize of R250 went to Monique Fourie from Rooihuiskraal Laerskool in Gauteng for a coloured pencil sketch of a super strong tin can.
In Category 2, for Grade 8 to 12 learners, first prize of R1000 went to Quinton Lehnert of Destinata School in Gauteng who captured strong emotions around the chosen theme in his artwork. Second prize of R500 was awarded to Ninke Voigts from Creston College in KwaZulu Natal for a pencil sketch and catchy poem. Leanne Kahn, also from Creston College, took the third prize of R250. Kahn conceptualised, designed and made a dress that incorporated used cans in the design. 

Collect-a-Can would like to thank all the learners that participated in the 2011 Artistic Expression Competition and hope to get just as many creative entries in 2012.

Learners and schools stand still more chances to win prizes from Collect-a-Can this year with the CAN Craze competition which is currently running.
