Environmental Awareness is Aim of Tourism Poster Contest

Environmental protection is the theme of this year’s Florida Caribbean Cruise Association Foundation Children’s Environmental Poster Competition, the Tourism Department indicated in a press release issued Tuesday. The deadline for submissions is May 1.

The goal of this year’s competition is to promote and stimulate environmental awareness among Caribbean students while educating the younger generation on the importance of environmental protection.

The competition is divided into two categories. The junior division is for ages 12 and under and the senior division for those 13 to 16.

Each student must submit one poster and select a topic of his or her choice that promotes environmental awareness. Each poster must depict at least three ways in which the student’s destination can make a difference in preserving the environment. To be eligible, each poster must be accompanied by a description of the work in English along with the title of the poster.

First place winners from each category – along with the student’s class – will be invited to participate in a special recognition event organized by the Tourism Department and the cruise ship association.

Complete contest details are available at school principals’ offices.
