NEW MARTINSVILLE, W.Va., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an effort to help prepare today's students to become tomorrow's environmental stewards, Bayer Corporation and the United Nations Environment Programme's North American Regional Office (UNEP RONA) today announced a new World Environment Day partnership and launched the International Children's Painting Competition in Bayer MaterialScience New Martinsville partner schools.

The International Children's Painting Competition (ICPC) invites elementary and middle school students ages six to 14 from around the world to learn more about the environment and express that knowledge creatively through art. The ICPC is a signature program of UNEP's annual World Environment Day activities.

The theme of World Environment Day and the International Children's Painting Competition also changes each year. This year's theme is Climate Change: Actions We Can Take Now.

This partnership with UNEP RONA and the ICPC also marks the newest local programming component of Bayer's national award-winning Making Science Make Sense(R) initiative which advances science literacy across the United States through inquiry-based, hands-on science learning, employee volunteerism and public education.
