HILTON HOTEL ENVIRONMENT ART (article first published : 2000-11-29)

On one of his recent visits abroad, Hilton Durban International general manager Gerhard Patzer was struck by a delightful card in a hotel room. Bearing a charming image produced by a child, it proclaimed the hotelís commitment to protecting the environment.

This prompted him on his return to launch a competition to produce a similar card for the Durban Hilton Internationalís Eco-friendly campaign. Hundreds of schools were invited to take part and the response was tremendous. Judges had a stiff job selecting the winners from 640 entries received from over 40 schools.

Winning the coveted first prize was Sarah Fell (14) of Durban Girls College who received R1,000 for herself and R2,000 for her school, Sarah is the daughter of well-known ceramist Carol Hayward Fell. As part of her prize, Sarah and her parents are offered a dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the Hilton Durban.

In second place winning R500 for herself and R1,000 for Crawford Preparatory Durban was Rachel Abrahams (9) who is offered a bed and breakfast stay for herself and her parents at the hotel.

In third place, was Andile Khomo (15) who won R250 for himself and R500 for his school Redfern Primary as well as a dinner at Hilton Durban for himself and his parents. A special award went to K Naidu (14) from Northwood Boys High.
