Mangroves and ME poster contest!

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

With coloring tools in hands and paper on desk, primary school students on the island took the opportunity to sound the alarm of how important the wetlands are to the eco-system. Over a hundred posters were displayed at the Central Park for the first ever World Wetland Day Poster Competition on Monday February 2nd.
The competition was organized jointly by Hol Chan Marine Reserve, The San Pedro Business Association and the Ambergris Caye Citizens for Sustainable Development. After being displayed for over two hours, the judges had the difficult task to choose the three winners and a winner for the most creative poster.

First place was captured by the Standard Six students of La Isla Bonita Elementary Primary School. The students consisted of Mario Guerrero, Walter Tut and Kristian Marin who walked away with $300 and a trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve (including snacks).

Second place was awarded to the Standard One students of Ambergris Caye Elementary Primary School. Kylie, Rochell, Jye, Brandon, Alina, Steven and Lucy walked away with $200.
Most Creative poster

Third place went out to San Pedro RC School student, Rina Godoy who took home $100. A fourth prize was given out after seeing the effort of the students, and Nathan Lisbey of Island Academy was awarded $100 for the most creative poster.
Other students took to their creativity and designed beautiful posters. Below found a couple that caught our attention.
