Surrey boy’s fishy drawing among winners in cracker company’s contest

‘Feed Imagination’ art showcased on Surrey billboard and also on website

We’d like to say there’s nothing fishy about Kabir Vasudeva’s winning artwork, but it’s very, very fishy.

The South Surrey boy’s drawing is among national winners of Goldfish Canada’s recent #FeedImagination contest.

As such, the five-year-old’s colourful artwork is now featured on a transit shelter located at King George Boulevard and 152nd Street in Surrey, in addition to 20 billboards across B.C., Alberta and Ontario. Kabir also won a $500 gift card for his efforts.

The cracker company’s ad campaign was created “to encourage imagination in the minds of Canadian children,” and involved a call for kids’ artwork and stories, “so that they would have an opportunity to show their work on a larger platform than their refrigerators.”

Kabir, a Kindergarten student at Semiahmoo Trail Elementary, loves to colour all day, according to his mother, Sakshi Vasudeva.

“We are thankful to Feed Imagination for fostering the creativity amongst the young brains and providing a platform to unleash their potential,” Sakshi told the Now-Leader.

All the contest-winning art is posted on Goldfish’s “Feed Imagination Hub,” online at FeedImagination.ca.
