ComBank supports prize-winning child artists

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon recently organised an Art Workshop for the winners of the Bank’s ‘Arunalu Siththam’ Art Competition held in 2021, which received more than 13,000 entries islandwide. The workshop was conducted by the members of the competition’s Panel of Judges headed by Professor Susiripala Malimboda. The colourful event was also attended by the parents of the children. The students received valuable insights on techniques that can improve their work. Certificates were presented to the participants at the end of the workshop.

The ‘Arunalu Siththam Art Competition’ conducted between October 1st and November 30th 2022 was open to children between the ages of four and 16. The competition hosted under the banner of the Bank’s popular children’s savings account ‘Arunalu’ was conducted for the third time in 2022. Once the selection process is concluded, the Bank stated that 137 young artists will be rewarded with cash prizes to the value of Rs 2 million. Another 250 participants will receive merit certificates.

Commercial Bank launched the ‘Arunalu Siththam Art Competition’ in 2017. The flagship children’s savings account of Commercial Bank, Arunalu, after which the competition was named, offers a higher interest rate for Children’s Savings Accounts and rewards account holders with special cash prizes if they score the first, second or third highest aggregate marks in their schools at the Year 5 Scholarship Examination.
