This year’s theme is Vive San Andrés
Students and their families from Adeje’s infant and primary public schools are invited to participate in the V Gadgets/Gizmos competition.
The competition is organised annually by the Department of Creative Development and the theme this year is Vive San Andrés (San Andrés is the fiesta where chestnuts are eaten, new wines are tasted and kids play with go-karts noisy tins and cans) and entries can be submitted between November 16th and 26th. The winners and runners up will be subsequently part of an exhibition in the Adeje Cultural Centre.
According to councillor Alonso Ferrera, “the department of creative development, sport and learning is always eager to support initiatives that promote development in the education sector. Following on the success of this competition in previous years, we are delighted to continue with the competition which helps students realise their potential as individuals and with their families in the making of these recycled models”.
The rules, which will be published in the Adeje webpages in Spanish and English outlines that each entry can be made with family members and must use recycled materials (primary material should, where possible, be tins or cans, any other materials must also fall into the recycling category) with San Andrés as the theme. Prizes consist of vouchers for school books and materials to the value of €40 for first place, €25 for second and €15 for third as well as runners up certificates for other entrants.
Winners will be chosen based on, among other things, creativity and originality.
