To mark the construction of the Terminal Building at the Airport, in early May the St Helena Government Public Relations Office launched a competition in Island schools for young people to submit a drawing, poem or essay – with winning entries to be placed in the Time Capsule which was buried at the Terminal Building on 28 June 2014.
A total of 131 entries were received from the schools and were judged by Lindsay McGinnety, Pamela Murray and Liam Yon. The high quality of the entries meant judges had a difficult task of choosing winners for each category, and as a result an additional three entries were highly commended. Most of the entries were of artwork.
To showcase the incredible talent of the young people on St Helena – all competition entries will be displayed on the ground floor of Porteous House from today 11 July 2014 to Friday 18 July.
Passersby are encouraged to view the display and see firsthand the perspectives, ideas and high quality of work from the young people of 2014.
