    Did you know that 1.3 billion people on earth do not have clean drinking water?

    Did you know that there are 1.2 billion people who live under the poverty threshold everyday?

    The premise of the Annual ecowrite Gel Pen Art Contest is  “love our planet, care for our community”. We hope to use this event to raise awareness and urge reactiveness amongst people in caring for their surroundings.

    By using gel pens, create a masterpiece, based on issues you feel are important to our world and use it as a theme towards your contest entry. 

    The ecowrite Gel Pen Art Contest allows students to gain awareness of our planet and community while exercising the gel pens’ fun and creative aspects. By doing so, your masterpiece will represent the beauty and harmony of the world.
