ABA​ Bank​ became​ the​ Premium​ Sponsor​ of​ the​ National​ Art​ Competition​ for​ young​ artists​ organized​ by​ Global​ Art​ Cambodia​ (GAC).​ This​ support​ displays​ the​ continuous​ commitment​ of​ the​ Bank​ and​ goes​ in​ line​ with​ the​ Bank’s​ CSR​ policy​ to​ promote​ children’s​ imagination,​ innovation​ and​ creativity​ through​ the​ arts.​

Held​ in​ Phnom​ Penh’s​ AEON​ Mall​ 2​ on​ September​ 1,​ 2019,​ the​ competition​ brought​ together​ the​ children​ to​ express​ their​ appreciation​ towards​ people,​ animals,​ things​ and​ events​ in​ their​ life​ in​ paintings.

“ABA​ Bank​ has​ been​ joining​ hands​ with​ GAC​ for​ this​ art​ competition​ since​ 2014,​ and​ we​ are​ happy​ to​ continue​ the​ journey​ again​ this​ year,”​ said​ Saksamret​ Som,​ Toul​ Kork​ Deputy​ Branch​ Manager​ who​ delivered​ the​ trophies​ and​ air​ tickets​ to​ Singapore​ as​ awards​ to​ the​ winners.​

“We​ believe​ that​ the​ event​ will​ help​ children​ to​ enhance​ and​ nurture​ human​ values,​ build​ good​ friendship,​ and​ learn​ to​ appreciate​ the​ people​ and​ the​ environment​ around​ them,”​ he​ added.

ABA​ Bank​ also​ setup​ a​ booth​ to​ provide​ some​ fun​ activities​ to​ children​ such​ as​ clown​ with​ animal​ balloons,​ face​ painting,​ and​ book​ coloring​ activities​ to​ entertain​ the​ children.​

In​ total,​ more​ than​ 160​ students,​ age​ 4-18,​ participated​ in​ the​ event.​ The​ competitors​ were​ divided​ into​ three​ age​ categories.​ The​ winners​ in​ each​ category​ received​ Global​ Art​ Scholarship​ for​ half​ year,​ flight​ tickets,​ trophies,​ certificates,​ and​ hampers,​ while​ consolation​ prizes​ were​ also​ given​ to​ runners​ up.​

The​ three​ champions​ –​ Ngoun​ Vanthath​ Sereyrotha,​ Lun​ Gech​ Houng,​ and​ Peou​ Thanen​ –​ will​ represent​ Cambodia​ at​ the​ International​ Art​ Competition​ in​ Singapore​ in​ December​ 2019.​
