Following the launching in December 2006 of the Patrimonito Storyboard Competition organized by the World Heritage Centre in coordination with the UNESCO Associated Schools, the contest results are now available.
Four hundred students from the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda registered to take part in the Competition. They submitted one hundred fifty-nine storyboards carrying the theme on the protection of the World Heritage sites of the National park of Virunga (DRC), the Rwenzori Mountains National Park and the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Uganda).
The next episode of the Patrimonito's World Heritage Adventures cartoon series will be produced on the basis of the winning storyboard. The name of the author, the name of the teacher as well as the school will appear in the generic of the film which will be distributed worldwide in CD and DVD format and will be made accessible to the public via the UNESCO World Heritage Centre website.
