KIMS holds the 13th Gyeongnam Children


Realizing carbon neutrality together with local children!



The Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS), a government-funded research institute under the Ministry of Science and ICT, is holding the 13th Gyeongnam Children's Art Contest for the Science of Tomorrow to commemorate Family Month, May. KIMS holds the drawing contest for elementary school students in Gyeongnam to express their imaginations and hopes for science. The event has not been held for the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it will be held non-face-to-face this year.



Any elementary school student in Gyeongnam can participate, but up to 400 applications on a first-come, first-served basis can be accepted on the Sangsang Platform website of KIMS (http://sangsang.kims.re.kr) from 9 am on May 2 (Mon.) to 6 pm on May 6 (Fri.). Up to 2 students per guardian can apply. Those who applied for the contest have to draw a picture under the theme of Carbon Neutrality Realized by Science and take a picture of the drawing to upload on the website during the contest period, from 9 am on May 16 (Mon.) to 6 pm on May 20 (Fri.). 



Lower grades (grades 1 to 3) can draw pictures by freely choosing the art tools such as crayons and colored pencils on A3 size drawing paper, and high-grade students (grades 4 to 6) should draw by using color paints on A2 size drawing paper. Students must draw by themselves and can not get any help from their guardians or teachers. The award may be revoked if imitation, plagiarism, or ghost painter are discovered. 



For the grand prize, a certificate and 300,000 KRW worth of additional prize will be awarded and for the 2 gold prizes, a certificate and 200,000 KRW worth of additional prizes will be given to each student. The silver prizes will go to 4 students with a certificate and 100,000 KRW worth of additional prizes for each awardee, and bronze prizes will be given to 8 students who will receive a certificate and 50,000 KRW worth of additional prizes. KIMS will also select 20 awardees and award a certificate and a KIMS-produced "With Material, With Future" package which consists of a science comic book and experience kit. 



Jung-hwan Lee, the President of KIMS, said, “I am deeply grateful for the interest and support of the Gyeongnam Children's Art Contest for the Science of Tomorrow. Children's dreams of science, which KIMS cherishes, will be collected and used for a better future.”
