The SVG National Olympic Committee successfully hosted three workshops for children, young persons, and adults/teachers on Art for Sport during the Summer vacation.
The workshops were held at the St. Joseph’s Convent, Kingstown and on conclusion, the SVGNOC hosted an Art Competition entitled, London 2012: Our People. Our Sport. Our Future. The competition was open to all Vincentians from the period September – October 15th, 2010.
The submissions were then judged by a panel of three artists here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, who adjudged the work of Ms. Khadisha Jackson, a resident of Calder and a teacher currently assigned to the West St. George Secondary School, as the winner.
Today, Monday 22nd November, Ms. Khadisha Jackson is the proud recipient of the $1000.00 prize from the SVG National Olympic Committee. Her work has been forwarded to the IOC and would form part of our 2011 Calendar.
