Bahamian Youth Get into International Migratory Bird Day Celebrations

Written by Erika Gates, as reported in the Bahamas Weekly, Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

The student art competition during International Migratory Bird Month at Garden of the Groves climaxed with the judging of the best paintings depicting birds migrating to Grand Bahama Island. Over 30 students presented outstanding works under the theme “Go Wild, Go Birding” and the judges had a difficult time to determine the winners. First prize was $100.00, second $50.00 and two third prizes were awarded in the amount of $25.00 each. All monies to be redeemed for school and educational supplies at Bellevue Gifts and Bellevue Business Depot.

“I am very impressed with the outstanding quality of these pictures,” commented Erika Gates of Garden of the Groves, “the details in the drawings of the birds are so accurate that I am able to identify each of their birds which is amazing!”
