The National Celebrations Commission announces 2012’s “THEME” Competition!

Friday, June 1st, 2012

All Belizeans living at home or abroad are invited to submit their most creative ideas for the theme of this year’s September Celebrations to commemorate the 214th Anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye and the 31st Anniversary of Belize’s Independence.

This year’s celebrations coincide with the festivities surrounding our Maya Culture and Heritage. The 21st September is recognized as the International Day of Peace. As a result, the theme may also include reflections capturing the contributions of Belize’s many cultural groups, to the national development, as well as ideas about peace and aspirations for our country.

The theme should not be more than ten (10) words and the deadline for submissions is Friday, June 15th, 2012. The winner of the chosen theme will receive a cash prize of $1000.

Email submissions to: [email protected] or drop it off at the House of Culture on Regent Street in Belize City or any of the offices of the District Town Councils.
