VIO Chemicals, a valued partner of the local community

VIO Chemicals: Chemistry drawing contest

As our 17th birthday approaches, we have decided to celebrate it together with our local community in Thessaloniki, Greece, by hosting a drawing contest about chemistry. Our goal is to give an opportunity for children of the future generation to become more aware of the presence of chemistry in their environment and understand the importance of the science of chemistry in shaping the world we live in today.

Chemistry is everywhere, in our bodies, in the environment, food, toys, trainers, transportation means, buildings, medicine, mobile phones and so on. It also offers solutions that improve the quality of life. By genuinely involving the local community, we hope to inspire the young generation to associate chemistry with positive changes in our daily life and encourage more and more pupils to study sciences to understand the world around us, enable a modern life and secure a sustainable future.

To us, it is very important to make positive contributions in the communities we operate. Thessaloniki is home to our R&D centre, and besides employing local people and contributing to the local economy, we wish to become a respected and valued partner of the local community at all levels, starting with promoting the science of chemistry.

All winning drawings, 3 in total, will be featured in our social media channels. The first winner will get a money prize and all winners will have the opportunity to get a guided tour in our chemistry laboratories and experience fascinating experiments.
