The Finding Jordan Picasso annual art contest by Jordan Oral Care Malaysia has ended on a high, with thirty talented children from all over Malaysia winning attractive prizes worth RM 30,000. The two categories included Category A of children between the ages of six and nine, and Category B of children between the ages of ten and twelve.

Sandee Chai, Regional Marketing Manager for Jordan Asia Pacific said, “The Finding Jordan Picasso contest has been running for three years in row. With this year’s theme being ‘My Favourite Food,’ we endeavour to remind children to brush their teeth thirty minutes after each meal.”

In order to participate in the contest, children between the ages of six to twelve were tasked to create art pieces depicting their favourite meals using non-digital mediums, with some going as creative as using recycled materials to build a delicious looking art piece. Sandee said, “A part of Jordan’s philosophy is sustainable living as we are 100 per cent Eco at Heart. Using recycled materials in the children’s art pieces definitely deserves a thumbs up from us!”
Deputy Head of Mission at the Royal Norwegian Embassy, Erlend Sannes Hadland, who was also present at the event said, “Encouraging and nurturing creativity is important in a child’s development. Art is a form of self-expression, and a form of communication.” He continued, “I am happy that Jordan has been encouraging creativity in children through their Finding Jordan Picasso contest. This year’s food-related theme which comes with a reminder to brush your teeth thirty minutes after a meal further enforces Jordan’s commitment to both dental hygiene and fostering the love of art in children.”

8-year old Ivy Sam was happy to have won the Grand Prize in Category A. Her mother, Win Chong said, “My children have joined in many competitions and this is the first time any one of them have won. We, as a family, are truly excited and very happy for Ivy. In fact, all my children are even more excited to join in more competitions now and I will always provide them with my support.” Ivy’s art piece was a bowl of spaghetti.

The day did not only put smiles on the faces of the winners of the Finding Jordan Picasso contest, but also on the faces of 15 underprivileged children from Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah. Jordan Oral Care Malaysia had treated the children to a healthy and hearty meal, on top of teaching them about the importance of oral hygiene and distributing a full set of oral care items to each child during the event.
