Grand Winners of "Small Voice, Big Difference" campaign launched by Lacnor and Oasis
Lacnor and Oasis, on a mission to inspire the next generation to create a sustainable and healthier tomorrow, invited kids to share their ideas for a better future with the community initiative ‘Small Voice, Big Difference’.
The initiative aimed to help kids ideate, formulate, and bring to life their best ideas to give everyone a brighter, healthier, and happier tomorrow. ‘Sustainability & Health’ workshops took place in 45 schools in the UAE, with more than 30,000 kids participating and over 3.4 million people reached on social media in the UAE. In-store and online activities ran throughout the campaign to create a fun, learning environment for all kids to participate.
The successful campaign “Small Voice, Big Difference” was celebrated by Lacnor and Oasis, the leading brands of National Food Products Company (NFPC), hosting their nature inspired, Awarding Ceremony, at The Farm, Al Barari. Kids with the winning ideas for the future were awarded and announced as members of the first 2 kids councils: Lacnor Kids Council for Health and Oasis Kids Council for the Environment, were officiated.
Over 5,000 kids participated in the campaign and submitted their wonderful ideas, judged by a professional jury consisting of; Dubai Municipality Food Safety Department, Dubai Municipality Environment Department, Emirates Environmental Group, Sharjah Education Council and Bee’ah, together with Lacnor and Oasis. The jury had a difficult task to select a total of 8 winners and members of Lacnor Kids Council for Health and a further 8 winners and members of Oasis Kids Council for the Environment, as every child had a unique and truly inspiring idea on how to make our tomorrow better.
Four Grand Winners won fully covered 1 year School tuition fees, sponsored by Lacnor and Oasis, as a recognition of their incredible ideas for a better future and the importance of supporting them in their education in years to come. These Grand Winners will also become the Heads of their respective councils, and will continue working on their ideas along with Lacnor, Oasis, Government agencies and organizations.
