“Children are the future of our world and their creative minds can do wonders. For nearly two years due to the ongoing pandemic situation their learning outcomes have been confined to a screen. Therefore, for this Children’s Day, with the hope of bringing happiness and excitement to their world, we at CDB wanted to create an opportunity for children to express their talents with colour to their heart's content, through “CDB Ranketi Siththam Roo 2021”. We encourage all parents to inspire their budding artists to take part in the competition” said Darshana Jayasinghe, Senior Deputy General Manager, Marketing at CDB as he shared his thoughts on the initiative.
Three winners will be selected by a distinguished judge and will receive exciting gifts from CDB. The winner of the First place will receive a Mountain Bike, while the second and third places will receive a Scooter and a Game set with a stationery pack, respectively.
