THE JUNIOR Achievement Slovensko non-governmental organisation is cooperating with the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) on a series of competitions that will give elementary and secondary school students the opportunity to express their feelings about euro adoption artistically, Marcela Havrilová, the NGO's general manager, announced on April 7.

The competitions are called Euro mojimi očami (The Euro Through My Eyes), Tak vidím euro (How I See the Euro) and Predstav nám euro (Introduce us to the Euro).

Each school will receive an information letter and a billboard with basic data about the project. Students will be allowed to express their feelings with photographs or works of art. Havrilová added that the project is also educational, as the students will have to learn about the euro as they create their works.

Viliam Ostrožlík, vice-governor of the NBS, agrees. He told the SITA newswire that the project is part of the central bank's mission to address the dialogue about euro introduction to a broad cross-section of society.

The Euro Through My Eyes is for students aged 15 to 19; How I see the Euro is a photography competition for elementary schools pupils aged 12 to 15; and Introduce us to the Euro is an artistic competition for elementary school pupils aged 10 to 12 years who are involved in the Základy podnikania (Foundations of Enterprise) project. The participants can submit their works until June 15.

A jury will select 15 works that will be awarded valuable prizes, such as notebooks, PCs, and gift certificates. The winning works will also be exhibited in the NBS headquarters and displayed on its website.
