The Environmental Board thanks all young Virumaa residents aged 5–13 who participated in the drawing competition “Me and the water body”. The competition received a total of 73 works, most of which depicted problems related to Estonian water bodies.

The authors who took part in the drawing competition appreciate the opportunity to swim in nature, play on the beach, catch fish and admire the sea view. At the same time, young people are also aware that Estonian people do not always behave prudently with water bodies and their biota. "Hopefully, the work of children will encourage more people to think about the importance of keeping water bodies clean and taking care of the conditions of aquatic life," said Liisi Marits, the organizer of the drawing competition and project manager of the Environmental Board. The aim of the drawing competition was to draw attention to what everyone can do to preserve water bodies.

The drawings were evaluated in three age groups: 5-7 years old, 8-10 years old and 11-13 years old. The winners were chosen by Liisa Puusepp, Environmental Awareness Adviser of the Ministry of the Environment, Enri Uusna, Environmental Education Specialist of the Environmental Board, Kadri Lindre, Art Teacher of Rakvere Creativity Center, and Tairi Karafin, Art Teacher of Jõhvi Gymnasium.
