The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Guam is holding an art drawing competition, which it says will help increase awareness of the growing relationship between Taiwan and the US, especially Guam.

The contest was organized in commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act. The law affirms the commercial, cultural, and other relations between the United States and Taiwan.

Guam students, from all levels, are invited to express and interpret the close friendship between Guam and Taiwan via art.

TECO, together with its partners in the private sector, raised funds for the prizes, which include new tablets, laptops, and more.

TECO director general Paul Chen said: “This year is the 42nd of the Taiwan Relation Act …which is the foundation of the relation between Taiwan and the United States in 1979. It’s 42 years of what Guam and Taiwan can do. I encourage the kids to research to know more about Taiwan and Guam internationally.”

TECO partnered with GovGuam agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and educational institutions such as GDOE and UOG for the competition.

The submission date is from March 22 to 31, 2021.

Artworks will be exhibited from April 3 to 8. Eligible artworks will be posted to the TECO Facebook page so the community can vote for their favorite entries.

The awards ceremony will be held at the Micronesia Mall on April 10.
