The National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) wishes to amend the award for second place in its Water Cooperation Poster Competition.
New second place winner Jalin Lalgie, a student of the St. Joseph’s Convent Grenville, was presented with her award, a Canon Digital Camera, and Certificate, by NAWASA’s General Manager, Christopher Husbands on Wednesday, September 25 at the Main Office on the Carenage.
Jalin’s piece on cooperation as it regards protecting the environment, won much accolade from the judges who viewed the posters on display at the National Museum on August 1st, 2013.
When asked about her artwork, Jalin shyly admitted that she did not intend to join the competition; it had only started out as a game between friends, but with a little push, she eventually submitted and …Result! She placed second. Jalin’s mother was a vision of pride as her daughter was handed the award.
Says General Manager Christopher Husbands, “Jalin’s achievement in the competition speaks to the talent of our young minds on issues relating to water. Via art she was able to bring to life the numerous ways there can be cooperation on the distribution and use of this precious finite resource. We commend her creativity and recognise the support of family and friends, again co-operation, an essential factor to her success.”
NAWASA commends all the participants of the poster competition including first place winner, Akel Passe and third place winner, Cherise Blache.
NAWASA also wishes to thank the participating schools and judges who made the competition possible.
World Water Day was observed on March 22nd, 2013 and provided an opportunity for students to have a voice on the issue of water cooperation.
