Ms Rosha Parvand, 13-year-old student, one of the winners said: “I and my little brother Vandad are lucky to grow up in a family where we know from our childhood about healthy eating habits and preservation of our planet, its environment and bees.   Our teacher supported my imagination and liked that in my painting, bees are preparing honey and serving it for the breakfast, lunch and dinner, together with other healthy products.   I am proud to be here and mark World Bee Day with my friends and parents.  Bees are artistic beings: they even can play musical instruments and sing, as we see at the drawing of my friend.” 

Each winner received specially designed certificate, UN backpacks and children’s book in Persian, Slovenian and English about bees and how they saved the world.   UN promotional materials were distributed as well.  Slovenian Embassy presented traditional honey cookies.
