The Trees of Our Town

2012 San Antonio de Areco, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Students from N2 Ricardo Pannunzio Secondary School, with special orientation in arts, presented an awareness contest about the local trees.

In order to promote the need to become aware of environmental care, they suggested cultural activities and calendars to spread the word. They prepared a photograph competition with the theme “Local Trees”.

The contest was open to all students of San Antonio de Areco watershed schools. Each student could present up to three photos. More than 120 photos were presented. The 13 winning photographs were chosen by the Jury. These photos were used to create the 2013 calendar that was distributed in the local area (library, schools, museums, etc.)

These 13 winning photographs will be part of the 2013 exhibition of the Museum Las Lilas (in San Antonio de Areco) and, as it was proposed, they will also be displayed at nearby community exhibitions.

In order to broadcast their contest, this team worked side by side with another group of students that also won the CFW contest by creating a Facebook account.
