9 year old wins drawing competition


9-year-old Anthea Mamo, who attends the St. Benedict College Primary School in Zurrieq, is the winner of the Tallinja Drawing Competition organised by Malta Public Transport, and her design will be featured on the new Child tallinja cards. Anthea’s drawing, which was considered to be the most interesting, creative and original entry, was chosen out of over 400 entries from children attending 22 different primary schools all over Malta and Gozo.


“We were pleasantly surprised by the large number of entries received, with a variety of drawings displaying the children’s imagination and talent,” said Konrad Pulé, General Manager of Malta Public Transport. “We would like to thank all the schools that participated in this competition for their support in this initiative.”


The Tallinja Drawing Competition was open to school children in Malta aged between 5 and 10. Apart from having her winning design printed on the child tallinja card, Anthea also won some fantastic prizes, including a year of free travel, an art set, a Maxi Micro Scooter as well as a 3D Printer for the school.


Two runner up prizes are also being awarded to Kirsten Azzopardi from St. Joseph School in Blata l-Bajda and Faye Galea from St. Dorothy’s Junior School in Zebbug. Both these children won a Maxi Micro Scooter and a 3D Printer for their school.


An award-winning ceremony, during which the new Child tallinja card featuring Anthea’s design will be launched, will be held at the beginning of the new scholastic year in October. Malta Public Transport congratulates all the children who participated in this competition, who will also be receiving a token gift and certificate of participation.
