2014 World Food Day - Poster Competition

St George's entries shortlisted for the Poster Competition

Ellis Schilling (Year 8) and Milda Lebedyte (Y12) have made the shortlist for the 2014 United Nations World Food Day poster competition. There were over 3000 entries from 70+ countries. Ellis & Milda were 2 out of only 3 students shortlisted from schools in Italy.

The theme of the 2014 poster contest is Family Farming: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth”
 
Family Farming: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth” is the formal wording of the 2014 theme. It has been chosen to raise the profile of family farming and smallholder farming by focusing world attention on its significant role in eradicating hunger and poverty, providing food security and nutrition, improving livelihoods, managing natural resources, protecting the environment, and achieving sustainable development, in particular in rural areas.
Interest in family farming is also reflected in the decision of the UN General Assembly to designate 2014 “International Year of Family Farming.”
