New drawing contest celebrates rural women

cartell 2021 concurs mon ruralBThe Formentera Office of Rural Affairs is pleased to announce the first drawing contest focused on rural women in commemoration of the International Day of Rural Women, 15 October.

Students from years one to four at Marc Ferrer Secondary School are encouraged to submit original A3-format drawings (twice the size of an A4 standard), and drawings must relate to women and aspects of the rural world like fishing, hunting, livestock, agriculture or any other topic that can be considered linked to rural living.

Councillor of Rural Affairs Josep Marí said the competition was about "turning a spotlight on and acknowledging the important role of women in the social and economic development of fishing, livestock farming and agriculture, otherwise known as the primary sector. Young people should think about this and be aware of it".

Submissions will be accepted until 13 October at the front desk of IES Marc Ferrer or at the Formentera Office of Agriculture, Livestock, Fishing and Hunting, located inside Centre Antoni Tur "Gabrielet", from 9.00am to 2.00pm. First-, second- and third-place winners in each grade level will receive €80, €60 and €40 cheques, respectively. The 12 winners can use their cheques to make purchases in book stores and computer shops on the island. Contest rules are available on the Consell de Formentera website.


The winning drawings can be seen from 15 to 22 October as part of an exhibition in the Centre "Gabrielet" courtyard.
