Name the UNICEF Mosquito & you could win a family day pass to Dublin Zoo!
She was the ‘larger than life’ star of our World Malaria Day Event in Dublin last April and soon, she will be buzzing around the UNICEF Ireland office to help visitors learn more about malaria.
Who are we talking about? Why our giant model mosquito of course!
Here she is photographed helping Dustin the Turkey and Don Conroy launch this year’s “Saved by the Net” Art Competition, and soon she will have pride of place in the UNICEF reception area to help us highlight our work with Fyffes to protect children from malaria in Mozambique.
And this is why we need your help - our mosquito needs a name!
For the month of August, we’re inviting children in primary school to send us in their suggestions for what name we should call our giant mosquito. Not only will we name our mosquito after the best suggestion.
The boy or girl who suggests the most suitable name for our mosquito will win a family day pass to Dublin Zoo for their efforts as well as the opportunity to come to the office in Dublin to meet the mosquito for themselves! The winner will be announced here on www.unicef.ie on Friday, September 7th 2012.
Oh and by the way, remember it has to be a girl name because only female mosquitos bite and can spread malaria!
