In March 2021, we launched the HEI HONU contest which consisted in producing work-of-arts with recycled and/or natural materials illustrating the issue of plastic pollution in our Polynesian waters. We received no less than 13 work-of-arts created by children from Tahiti and Moorea schools.
For the winners: a recreative and educative morning at the foundation on WORLD OCEANS DAY on June 8th, 2021.
* In the « Poster Category », the winner is the CM1- CM2 class from FARERO’I elementary school with Miss Paquita. A beautiful fresco made out of natural and recycled materials with the message « A clean ocean, I choose it. And you? ».
* In the « Land-art Category », the winner is the CE2 grade from MAIRIPEHE elementary school with Miss Moeata. An incredible ephemeral masterpiece visible from the sky which required the participation of 50 people!
In addition, the Jury Special Prize was awarded to the CM1 grade from PAPETOAI elementary school with Miss Karine for its originality. They will benefit from an educational program at our foundation in the next few weeks.
We wish to congratulate the 3 winning classes and to thank all the schoolchildren and their teachers for their creativity and their investment. Thank you also to the jury: Jose Marquez, Muriel Raddato from Les bourdons de Moorea, Franck Connan from Office français de la biodiversité, Vie Stabile, Sylvie Pithon, Emma Theron and Hélène Duran from Te mana o te moana.
Mauruuru to all!
