The rally was for the high school students but these three younger kids were there to receive their awards from "Be Kind Belize". They were nominated by their primary schools for the Kindest Kid in San Pedro Award (ages 6 to 10). Here are the winning Kindness Ambassadors. Kids who put others before themselves, who respect their teachers, their friends and the environment (though the competition is over, read the nominations, you'll tear right up). Seriously cute and so nervous to stand on stage in front of the high school and receive their prizes!

Minister Heredia presented them with some seriously packed gift bags. Mariano Calderon (in orange from the Island Academy) was the grand prize winner.

Kindest Kid in San Pedro Awarded

Be Kind Belize was looking for the “Kindest Kid” in the community and students at primary school level were invited to nominate Kindness Ambassadors to represent their school. Students that have done acts of kindness were asked to be nominated for this award and after much nominations being entered it was narrowed down to four.

Nominations were posted online and the public was asked to vote for their favorite (anonymous) nominee. The idea behind the award was to acknowledge acts of kindness and reward them. Be Kind Belize wants to encourage the community to start to recognize our great kids so that they will be role models for future generations.

Kindest Kid in San Pedro Award 2012 –
Thank you and congratulations!

On the 24th of May 2012, Minister of Culture & Tourism, Hon. Manuel Heredia, presented prizes to three children, who had won awards for kindness in San Pedro. The Grand Prize winner was Mariano Calderon (The Island Academy), Faith Azueta (R.C. School) was the 1st Runner up and Naomi King (The Island Academy) won the Be Kind Belize Choice Award.

The Kindest Kid in San Pedro Award was started by Be Kind Belize with the belief that children who do good things in our community and who are kind deserve acknowledgement. By doing this, it is hoped that discussions about kindness and generosity of spirit will be started in schools, encouraging children to look up to positive role models, such as the Kindest Kid Award winners.

The children were nominated by their schools as ‘kindness ambassadors’. Teachers, principals and students were involved in the nomination process. Many thanks to San Pedro High School students, and most of all High School Counsellor, Gustavo Ramirez, for their assistance in the elimination process and support throughout.

The local media have been tremendously supportive and this event would not have been so successful without their help and encouragement. Thanks also to Restore Belize, for organising the Youth Rally, which was such a wonderful event and inviting Be Kind Belize to participate. Maureen Utsman’s lovely assistance in helping to make this happen was especially appreciated.

Each winner received a fabulous gift bag and a cash prize. This wouldn’t have been possible without many generous prize sponsors and supporters who also deserve acknowledgement for their kindness. They include:

BACAB Eco Park
Rico’s Bar & Grill
Sail Away Cafe
San Pedro Fitness Club
Sail Sports
San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxis
Kakaw Belizean Chocolate
Janice Morningstar
Brenda Wyatt
San Pedro Books
SEArious Adventures
Ramon’s Village Resort
Gecko Graphics
D& E’s Frozen Custard and Sorbet
Scotia Bank
Fido’s Restaurant and Bar
Pelican Reef Villas

It was amazing to see the enthusiasm and participation amongst the schools and all of those who participated in this event. Schools that were represented in the finals were The Island Academy, R.C. School, Holy Cross Anglican School and Ambergris Caye Elementary School. They should be very proud of their students, whose nominations, publicised widely, demonstrated how wonderfully kind the children of San Pedro truly are. They were all perfect kindness ambassadors.

Thanks to everyone who voted and helped select the winners.

Be Kind Belize was established in 2007 to promote humane education in Belize. Humane education is based on the concept that all life is precious and is practiced by teaching young people the value and importance of treating all living creatures with kindness. As part of the programme children learn about self respect, caring for others, how to behave responsibly and understanding the consequences of their actions. Through classroom activities and research projects they learn why it is important to be kind to their family, friends, classmates, community, animals and the planet and how kindness makes Belize a better place.

If you would like to volunteer as a Be Kind Belize Humane Educator or if you would like to sponsor the programme in some way, please write to [email protected]
