Last year, Atria shopping complex at Damansara Jaya had hosted a poster drawing contest entitled “I Love My Country”. The drawings are based on Merdeka theme, the independance theme.

Hopefully with Merdeka celebrations around the corner, art class teachers and organizations would organize simple contest to nurture the creativity and patriotism for our beloved country, Malaysia.
