For 4 consecutive years since 2013, Wall's Malaysia successfully did their part in raising the awareness among children to go green and love the nature through their Paddle Pop Young Builders Award which is fully supported by Ministry of Education. This national program was designed to encourage kids to create their 3D artwork from recyclable items such as the Paddle Pop ice-cream sticks. The competition is open to all primary schools in Malaysia (standard 4, 5 or 6 students). To participate, the schools only need to send in their design sketches according to the theme given and the shortlisted school team will be building the 3D replica using recyclable stuff based on the sketches they submit earlier at the final this June.
According to Dato' P. Kamalanathan, Deputy Minister of Education 1 during the award launch at Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Tun Dr Ismail 1 on 25th February 2016; looking for new and fun way to attract children to appreciate nature is a very challenging task but through Paddle Pop Young Builders Award, they can have fun while creating innovative artwork and seeing daily items that they used from different perspective. They can fully utilize them instead of throwing it away which is not only good for our nature, it's budget friendly too.
To inspire the kids, Paddle Pop is taking the initiative to give them missions in order to save the earth with a short animated video that features Shadow Master, an evil force that try to destroy the sea and land. The Paddle Pop lion and his friends are going to need help the kids help in order to restore back their city, Atlantos which they can do by joining the Paddle Pop Young Builders Award. The winning team will not only get cash rewards, they'll also get a sponsored trip to Legoland with their family as well.
