2021 Olympic Day – Colouring and Drawing Competition


Dear Parents,

The Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC) used to organize running event as the celebration activity for the International Olympic Day on 23 June every year. However, due to the persistent pandemic situation in Hong Kong, the SF&OC will alternatively organize the inaugural “Colouring & Drawing Competition” to celebrate the Olympic Day this year. The event will enable members of the public to use their creativity and imagination to demonstrate their understanding on Olympism through colouring and drawing at anywhere in Hong Kong.

The three pillars set out by International Olympic Committee, i.e. MOVE, LEARN and DISCOVER, Olympic Day summon people across the world to get active MOVE, LEARN about the Olympic Values and DISCOVER new sports. Three intrinsic values: Excellence, Friendship and Respect, are powerfully conveyed at the time of the Olympic Games.

We cordially invited your child to actively take part in this meaningful event, which can, at the same time, give encouragement to Hong Kong athletes to take part in the coming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The competition is divided into four categories, including Kindergarten (K1-3), Lower Primary School (P1-3), Upper Primary School (P4-6) and Open. Except for the Kindergarten group, participants in other categories can select either Olympism, Olympic Games or Olympics Sports as the theme for their drawing. Each category will be awarded with Champion, 1st Runner-up, 2nd Runner-up and 10 merit awards. On top of cash prizes and gifts to be awarded to winners, the winning pieces will be exhibited in an exhibition to be held tentatively from 23 July to 13 August 2021 while the Awards Presentation Ceremony will be held on 24 July 2021.

The deadline for entry and submission of artwork will be on 23 June 2021. Details of the competition and the entry form can be downloaded from the SF&OC website at: https://bit.ly/3opSpvn.

Please join the competition and support the d organized in Hong Kong!

Yours truly, San Wui Commercial Society YMCA of HK Christian School
