The Siddhalepa group has once again provided the platform for preschool children to express their natural talents with the launch of its Kekulu all-island art competition.
The competition held for the fifth consecutive year is in conjunction with the World Children’s Day which is celebrated on October 1.
The competition is open to preschool children in all 25 districts of the country. Held district wise, the competition culminates with an overall winner from each of the 25 districts, at an awards ceremony to be held at the BMICH. All participants will receive a certificate as an encouragement and recognition of their participation. Veteran artist Sybil Wettasinghe judged the competition last year and this year too, a personality of equal standing will judge the winners.
This year’s competition titled a ‘Rainy Day’ is designed to trigger the young imagination and induce children to use their best skills of artistic expression to depict a natural phenomenon that children in tropical countries experience as part of life from a tender age, learn to live with and value.
“Our commitment to the younger generation is given expression by this all-island competition, which reaches all our preschools in every district, carrying the Siddhalepa message of natural, safe and mild protection and care for infants and young children, through their Kekulu range to all mothers,” said Siddhalepa Group Chairman Deshabandu Dr. Victor Hettigoda.
The Kekulu range of children’s soap, toothpaste, colognes are among the most popular products in the Siddhalepa brand of the over 150 products manufactured by the Siddhalepa group based on the Ayurveda formulas.
The baby soap range with its refreshing fragrances of jasmine, hibiscus, aloe vera and aruda and in attractive colours, are mild and safe for infants and contains additional health benefits to infant skin making this Ayurveda range a popular, safe and affordable choice for young mothers.
The baby colognes with their distinctive range of colours and fragrances compliment the Kekulu soaps. To supplement its signature baby soap range, the Kekulu range also offers an Ayurvedic toothpaste, which protects gums and teeth and a baby toothbrush.
