SUBANG JAYA: Children lit up a lantern-colouring and designing competition at The Summit Subang Jaya recently.

Held as a lead-up to the Lantern Festival celebrations, the competition saw young children flex their creative muscles.

The lanterns that they designed, will go on display at the shopping complex's concourse area during the festival.

Though Moon Cake festival is a Chinese tradition, the competition attracted children from other communities.
 

In fact, the lanterns will feature a unique combination of Moon Cake festival, Hari Raya and Deepavali decorations.

The event, which began on a recent Sunday afternoon, saw the children being divided into five age groups: Group A ( 5-6 years), Group B (7-8 years), Group C ( 9-10 years), Group D (11-12 years) and Group E ( open to children aged 16 and below).

Participants were provided with the material they needed to complete their task of designing and colouring their lanterns within a specified time.

Manager of advertising and promotions for The Summit, Wivien W. H. San, monitored the event with other staff.

"The main goal of organising this event is to promote traditional arts and culture among the children, as we want such cultural activities to go on," she said.

Results of the competition will be announced on Sept 13, when all competitors will gather to parade their creations in the presence of Minister of Transport Datuk Ong Tee Keat.

Winners will receive cash prizes, cash vouchers, trophies, goodies and hampers sponsored mainly by Pentel and The Summit Subang Jaya.
