So that children and young people get even better acquainted with the superheroes Ozonko and Ozončica, the Ministry of the Environment and Energy has launched an artistic competition with an educational character.

The Art Contest “Make a Superhero, Get Your Environmental Awareness on Go!” is intended for students of the upper grades in elementary schools (grades 5 - 8). This competition encourages students to reflect on this extremely important topic, since the ozone layer, due to its physical and chemical processes, significantly reduces the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation that penetrates the Earth's surface, thus protecting living beings on Earth. Students need to create a sculpture inspired by the Ozonko and Ozončica Viber stickers. The sculpture should be made of objects or materials intended for waste that were previously used in teaching or daily life (such as paper, cardboard, plastic, PET packaging, stoppers, textiles, styrofoam, etc.).

In this way, the Ministry wants to encourage young people to use imaginatively items that would otherwise end up in the recycling bin, thus reducing the amount of waste generated, contributing to the conservation of nature and the environment, as well as expressing themselves creatively. The competition is open until December 1, 2019, after which an expert commission will select the best among the submitted works, which will be awarded by the Ministry of Environment and Energy.

The Ozonko and Ozončica campaign was launched on the occasion of the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer by the Ministry of the Environment and Energy in partnership with Rakuten Viber, one of the world's leading messaging platforms.

The first “green” sticker package in Croatia can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android devices or on a computer. To download the stickers, you need to select the "More" option in the Viber application, then click on the "Sticker Store" and look for the stickers "Ozonko and Ozončica" inside. All those who download the stickers will automatically become members of the Community, where they will be able to participate in fun and educational interactive activities. In addition, in the Community, followers will be able to talk with Ozonka and Ozončica, and also with their guests.
