September celebrations theme competition officially opened

Preparations for the 2017 September celebrations have begun, and the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), is announcing the official opening of the September celebrations theme competition.

The theme should not be more than 10 words, and individuals are allowed to submit multiple entries. The submissions should be in commemoration of the 219th anniversary of the Battle of St George’s Caye and the 36th anniversary of Belize’s Independence.

The winner will receive a cash prize of a $1,000 and an invitation to the official ceremonies during September.

Belizeans living at home and abroad are invited to submit their ideas for the theme. Deadline for submissions is Friday June 23.

Submissions can be emailed to [email protected], or can be dropped off at the NICH office on Regent Street, or at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts, or at any town council office in any of the districts.
