LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Following Bosch Thermotechnology’s announcement of the winners of its annual Green Living Awards (GLA) Contest in February, which recognizes contractors, specifiers, and builders who install high-efficiency Bosch heating and cooling products, the company selected three winners of its accompanying Children’s Art Contest, which is open to children ages 2-16.

The GLA Children’s Art Contest encourages children to express creatively — whether through drawing, painting, poetry, or essay — their respect for the environment and what it means to live in a greener world. Winners were selected for the most original creation based on their specific age group. A grand prize winner was also selected.

Bosch Thermotechnology awarded prizes in the form of Visa gift cards. Winners also received a certificate of achievement from Bosch.

The 2014 GLA Children’s Contest Award winners are:

• Grand Prize Winner: age group 12-16, Aniela Edwards, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for her “Through My Hands I will Nurture and Shape a Greener Earth” painting;

• Age group 2-6: Yash Magar, Boca Raton, Florida, for his “Go Green” collage; and

• Age group 7-11: Lars Fosstveit, Mountainville, New York, for his “Live Green, Laugh Green, Love Green” drawing.

“It’s always amazing to see how children respond creatively when asked to express how they see the environment and their place in it,” said Richard Soper, president of Bosch Thermotechnology North America. “The entries we receive each year demonstrate children are keenly aware of the environment around them and the importance of a healthy environment to their future.”

This year’s contest will open up on Earth Day, April 24. For more information on the Bosch Green Living Awards and the Children’s Art Contest, visit
