With a large turnout of students from different schools in Puerto Vallarta, the drawing competition was held with the theme “Sustainable Tourism in Puerto Vallarta”, as part of the celebrations for World Tourism Day, whose winners were awarded this Tuesday.
World Tourism Day (WTD) is celebrated every year on September 27, with the aim of raising awareness among the international community about the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.
This year, the World Tourism Organization promotes sustainable tourism as an instrument of development, since in its purest sense, it is an industry committed to making a low impact on the local environment and culture, while contributing to generate income and employment for the local population.
As part of the celebration, the Municipal Directorate of Tourism of Puerto Vallarta held the drawing contest “Sustainable Tourism in Puerto Vallarta”, and in the inner courtyard of the municipal palace a total of 34 finalist students presented their works, all of high quality, which were judged by the jury composed by the artists Ada Colorina and Javier Niño.
Four students from the “Vicente Guerrero”, “Lázaro Cárdenas del Río”, “José María Morelos y Pavón” and “20 de Noviembre” schools participated, as well as from ISPAC, Juana de Asbaje, three schools José Joaquín Fernández Lizardi, Friedrich Froebel and Ameyali, and one from the British College.
