2 Belizean Students Win Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Foundation Poster Competition

Belize City, Belize – Wednesday, August 1, 2012 – Two Belizean Primary school students will be awarded this August for having won third and second place in a poster competition called the 2012 FCCA Foundation for the Caribbean Children’s Environmental Poster Competition. They are Nazeen Segura of Grace Primary School and Jordanny Williams of Belize High School.

Belize admitted entries to the poster competition through the BTB and was carried under the auspices of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA).  Ana Maria Benitez, membership administrator of the FCCA shared in an e-mail, “we congratulate Nazeem Segura of Grace Primary School as the third-place winner in the junior division and Jordanny Williams of Belize High School as the second-place winner in the senior division of the 2012 FCCA Foundation Children’s Poster Competition.” She also shared the prizes that these students will be receiving by stating, “We are pleased to award Nazeem a cash scholarship of US $1,000 with Grace Primary School receiving a monetary award of US $1,000. Jordanny will be awarded US $1,500 with Belize High School receiving a monetary award of US $1,500.

This poster competition had sought to promote and stimulate environmental awareness among Caribbean students, while effectively educating our younger generation on the importance of environmental protection. This year the competition was conducted in two categories: a junior division for children with ages 12 years and under, and a senior division for children ages 13-16 years. The FCCA awarded cash to the first, second and third place winners and their schools from the two age categories.
