WATER CONSERVATION CHILDREN'S CONTEST IN WESTERN BELIZE

WATER CONSERVATION AWARENESS PROGRAM FOR SCHOOLS IN THE WESTERN BELIZE AREA

It may seem a strange subject to have, after the last OCTOBER river floods of 2008 in Western Belize. Paullette Robinett, of Santa Familla Village in the Cayo District wrote an article with photos, of winning students, for the WATER AWARENESS CONTEST.
The article can be found in the STAR newspaper of the Twin Towns of Western Belize. You can find this newspaper on the internet.
The WATER and AGRICULTURE Awareness Contest was organized by “Whistling Ducks Farm” for children between 6 and 16 years of age.
Contest judges were Cynthia Reece, Paulita Bedran Figueroa and Elvin Garcia. The WINNERS received CASH PRIZES and certificates. FIRST PLACE WAS Graci J. Remopel of Santa Familia RC School. Her teacher Mr. Rodolfo Tun received a $100 GIFT CERTIFICATE from CELINA SUPERSTORE, for classroom supplies in San Ignacio Town. Mr. Tun received the Honorable Teacher Certificate for encouraging his students to practice water conservation.
SECOND PLACE went to Elder Quewell from Eden HighSchool in Hillview, Santa Elena Town. THIRD AND FOURTH PLACE awards went to Tirsha Quewell from Eden High School and Eliodoro Coleman from Santa Familiar RC primary school.
As I write this, a noisy flock of Green Parrots are outside my office window in Hillview, on the slope of GREEN PARROT VALLEY, unable to fly yet, as the morning mountain mist has condensed everywhere. The sun will burn it off in another hour though.
Certificates of Honorable Mention were presented to Samantha Quewell, Jashua Quewell, Absolon Vallecillo, Daphy A.egria, Ronnell Obando and Casey Manzanero.

Please check out my idea of a Water conservation/Skatepark on the Island of Caye Caulker in Belize at this link: http://www.facebook.com/events/267981239988999/

I really need some help to make this happen, so any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Aaron H.
