Dear Friends, 

We would like to thank you for your support in the previous years and to inform you that due to its success BankMed will be relaunching its annual school competition for the 6th consecutive year. 
We count on your participation as a school and on your students' participation.
We are sending you in attached the rules and regulations for the year 2014-2015, the registration form as well as the official circular sent by the Ministry of Education and higher Education.
The competition is divided into two parts a Student competition and a School competition. 


Student Competition:

This year the students will be judged upon their submitted drawings and slogans "to encourage sea protection and its natural environment" 

 "Ocean protection starts with us":

"The ocean is the cradle of life. It supports 80 per cent of life on Earth and is a natural environment vital to human survival: 50 to 70 % of our oxygen comes from the ocean.  The ocean is the #1 source of protein for more than a billion people; The ocean regulates our climate, absorbs carbon dioxide, holds 97% of Earth's water, and supports the  greatest abundance of life on our planet. More than 60% of the world's population lives on or near the coast.  

Because Everyone, everywhere depends on a healthy sea and because the Ocean is in trouble -90% of the big fish are gone discarded plastics have formed a toxic "plastic soup" eaten by sea animals, causing illness and death which enters our diets,too- We therefore call upon the schools and their students to give practical support to the protection of the marine environment and resources." Through your drawings and slogans encourage others to protect the sea and its natural environment and show its importance in our lives.
