This year Benzina has held the third annual competition for children’s homes as part of its ‘Benzina pomáhá’ platform (Benzina Helps). The children were to depict their dream-car. The best idea came from the children’s home in Špálova Street in Ústí nad Labem. The winners could enjoy a dream-weekend in the Krkonoše Mountains and after their comeback, they were pleasantly surprised by a renovated kitchen and leisure time facilities for CZK 100,000.

Forty-two children’s homes joined the third year of ‘Benzina pomáhá’ project. The first prize went to Ústí nad Labem.

The third annual competition for children’s homes held as part of the ‘Benzina pomáhá’ platform was attended by 42 children’s homes from all over the country. Their task was to depict a dream-car. The general public could vote in the first round where almost 140,000 votes were submitted. The top five entries advanced to the second round where a judge’s panel, including Benzina’s director Marek Zouvala, scientist Michael Londesborough and Nagano medallist Jiří Šlégr, determined the final rankings.

Both the panel of judges and the public most appreciated the original idea coming from the children’s home in Špálova Street in Ústí nad Labem inspired by the popular Star Wars saga. The second prize went to the children’s home in Dolní Čermná and the third place was taken by the children’s home in Jaroměř. “All works were really good, and it was not easy at all to choose the winner. I am pleased that the children from Ústí nad Labem enjoyed their weekend in the Krkonoše Mountains and I believe they were excited by the renovation. We will continue this project and we are all looking forward to next year’s competition,” said Marek Zouvala, Director of the Benzina network.

“We had a great time on our trip to the Krkonoše Mountains. The children were excited and had many wonderful experiences. After their comeback, they were surprised to see the renovated kitchen and they were so happy during the handover. The new kitchen is beautiful and serves really well. We could not try out the paddling pool yet, but I am sure that the children will really enjoy it next year,” said Alena Novotná, director of the children’s home in Špálova Street in Ústí nad Labem.

The other children’s homes did not leave empty-handed either. The children from Dolní Čermná received prizes worth CZK 30,000, including a trip to the Safari Park in Dvůr Králové or to a unique entertainment facility, TEPfactor, in Slapy. The children from Jaroměř will travel to a small ZOO in Malá Chuchle and to the museum of senses in Prague. The children’s homes in Most and Řepiště which ranked fourth and fifth received interesting rewards, too, e.g. sports equipment from Benzina’s Sport Boxes.
