Nampak Report 2018
4. ROSE competition outcome The Oil Recycling Rocks! competition run by WESSA on behalf of the ROSE foundation had colourful entries from KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape, the Free State, North West and Limpopo provinces. The pieces ranged from abstract works playing on colour and texture to works that directly portrayed the devastation wreaked by oil pollution on birds and marine life. Although the competition was open to Grade 6 to 11 learners most entries were Grade 10 learners. The finalists included learners fromGlenwood House (Danielle Dominick, Adrienne Vercueil and Athene Hage), from Maritzburg Christian School (Samuel Roberts, Akhona Mthembu and Sekhona Zondi), from Waterfall College (Starla Wilson), from Le-Reng Secondary (Kalane Maleshwane, Taoana Lehlohonolo and Mosamo Thato) and Lebone II College of the Royal Bafokeng (Amalia Slater). These finalists received an “oil recycling rocks jacket” for their efforts. Mr Bubele Nyiba, the ROSE Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, selected a personal favourite artwork for an extra award. The CEO’s Special Award was awarded to Grade 10 learner, Sekhona Zondi from Maritzburg Christian School for a piece entitled “Fairwell Fair Earth”. Sekhona Zondi has earned a picnic table made from recycled plastic for the school campus. This will be a reminder to all learners that by recycling waste something useful and lasting can be created. Dr Cathy Dzerefos of WESSA thanked the participants for the effort that they put in to create artwork with the dual purpose of being aesthetically pleasing and encouraging critical thinking on human interaction with the environment. Teachers that made the effort to encourage learners to participate, have done their part in raising awareness on issues that everyone can try to improve on. The next competition will be opening soon and the closing date for submissions will be 22 April 2019 which also happens to be Earth Day.
