Prize-Giving Ceremony for the Winners of the Grenada Green Group (G3) Poster Competition 2023-2024

On Thursday, May 23, 2024, the Grenada Green Group (G3) hosted a prize-giving ceremony at the Ministry of Tourism Conference Room, 4th floor, Ministerial Complex, Botanical Gardens, St. George. This event celebrated the achievements of six talented students who excelled in the 2023-2024 Poster Competition. Five out of the six finalists were present to receive their awards in person.

 

This year's competition was launched in November 2023 by the Grenada Green Group (G3), an organization dedicated to preventing littering and dumping in both inland and coastal environments. G3 focuses on public education to prevent littering, addressing the issue at its source rather than relying on cleanup efforts.

 

Open to all primary and secondary school students, the competition attracted numerous entries, with three winners selected from each category. The posters were evaluated by professionals from Nahshon Jeremiah Arts based on creativity, relevance to the theme, technique, cleanliness, and overall impression.

 

The prizewinners are as follows:

 

Primary School:

1. Dawniella St. Bernard, St. Paul's Government School

2. Kanishka Tehalyani, Westmorland School

3. Bronte Griffith, St. Paul's Government School

 

Secondary School:

1. Jamya Lewis, St. Joseph's Convent St. George's

2. Alexa Charles, St. Joseph's Convent St. George's

3. Olivia Stephen, St. Joseph's Convent St. George's

 



The event was generously sponsored by Ariza Credit Union, with additional support from Derma Med Skin and Laser Clinic and the Ministry of Climate Resilience, the Environment, and Renewable Energy, which provided the venue.

 

G3 plans to circulate the winning posters throughout medical facilities across the island to emphasize that littering is not only unsightly but also hazardous. The theme for this year's competition, "Clean Communities for a Green Future," resonated deeply with participants, resulting in numerous creative and thought-provoking submissions. Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Climate Resilience, the Environment, and Renewable Energy Peron Johnson, who attended the ceremony and also presented the finalists with their prizes, praised the students' efforts and the impactful messages conveyed through their artwork.

 

Prizes were awarded as follows: $150 for first place, $100 for second place, and $75 for third place. G3 congratulates all participants and encourages everyone to continue supporting efforts to maintain a clean and healthy environment for future generations.
