Winner of 1st place
Winner of 1st place

Dear donors and supporters of the Múcura Award:

First of all, we want to express our deepest gratitude for your continuous support of this noble initiative. Thanks to you, in 2023 we were able to successfully call on 28 children from the rural schools of Tota and Guáquira to participate in the children's category of the award.

We are overjoyed to inform you that we received proposals from two talented 7 and 11 year old children, who presented projects related to the conservation and care of wetlands in their communities. After careful consideration, we selected 7-year-old E.D. Camayo as the first place winner for his "Source of Thirst" project on the cleaning and conditioning of a wetland near his home. Second place went to 11-year-old C.F. Munévar for the creation of a mini-wetland.

We attach some images of the winning projects, as well as the diplomas and prizes they received, including binoculars, educational wetland games and surprise prizes. It has been very emotional to see the enthusiasm, creativity and environmental commitment of these little ones in action. Complete details are visible here.

With the help of committed donors like you we can continue to inspire more children and youth to become guardians of the environment. This is why we want to ask for your continued support to give visibility to the Múcura Award, sharing with your circles the noble work we do and motivating more people to join this cause.

Again, a thousand thanks for believing and trusting in us. Together we can make a difference in shaping the new generations.

Sincerely,

Felipe Velasco
Montecito Foundation

 

Queridos donantes y seguidores del Premio Múcura:

En primer lugar, queremos expresar nuestra más profunda gratitud por su apoyo continuo a esta noble iniciativa. Gracias a ustedes, en 2023 pudimos convocar exitosamente a 28 niños de las escuelas rurales de Tota y Guáquira para participar en la categoría infantil del premio.

Nos llena de alegría informarles que recibimos propuestas de dos talentosos niños de 7 y 11 años, quienes presentaron proyectos relacionados con la conservación y cuidado de humedales en sus comunidades. Tras una cuidadosa deliberación, seleccionamos como ganador en primer lugar a E.D. Camayo, de 7 años, por su proyecto "Fuente de Sed" sobre la limpieza y adecuación de un humedal cerca de su casa. El segundo lugar fue para C.F. Munévar de 11 años por la creación de un mini-humedal.

Adjuntamos algunas imágenes de los proyectos ganadores, así como los diplomas y premios que recibieron, incluyendo binoculares, juegos educativos sobre humedales y premios sorpresa. Ha sido muy emotivo ver el entusiasmo, creatividad y compromiso ambiental de estos pequeños en acción. Detalles completos visibles aquí.

Con la ayuda de donantes comprometidos como ustedes podemos seguir inspirando a más niños y jóvenes a convertirse en guardianes del medio ambiente. Es por esto que queremos pedir su apoyo continuo para darle visibilidad al Premio Múcura, compartiendo con sus círculos la noble labor que realizamos y motivando a que más personas se unan a esta causa.

De nuevo, mil gracias por creer y confiar en nosotros. Juntos podemos marcar la diferencia en la formación de las nuevas generaciones.

Cordialmente,

Felipe Velasco
