MY TREE HOUSE’S ECO STORYTELLING CONTEST 2021
Given the success of the 2020 My Tree House’s Eco Storytelling Contest, the 2021 edition continues to encourage family bonding through storytelling and home video production, while aiming to unearth young eco champions amongst us during the COVID-19 heightened alert period.
Themed “We Love Our Planet” and in celebration of World Environment Day 2021, My Tree House’s Eco Storytelling Contest is jointly organised by CDL and the National Library Board (NLB).
Chia Lin Yu Kimberlyn, 6 years old
Produced by award-winning filmmaker Ang Qing Sheng, “We Love Our Planet – Voices of our Children 2021” features winners, finalists and selected participants from the contest and highlights our children’s love for our planet and aims to inspire people to protect Nature.
It was a tough competition this year! We are elated to receive some 150 impressive entries and are pleased to announce that we have planted 150 fruit trees for each participant in India to help small and marginalised farmers increase their families’ nutrition and income, while fighting pollution, conserving water and preventing soil erosion.
In addition to receiving prize money in the form of CDL vouchers, the top winner from each category also had 100 trees planted in his/her name! That makes a total of 550 fruit trees planted in India.
A big “Thank you” to our panel of judges, Ms Lynn Chua, NLB; Dr Audrey Chia, NUS Business School; Ms Kamini Ramachandran, MoonShadow Stories & The Storytelling Centre Limited; Ms Rachel Kelly, SPH Radio; and Ms Esther An, CDL.
