CFBC Wins ECCB/RSS ARU Creative Youth Art Competition

Anique Ward, a second-year student at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC), placed first in the age 17-19 category of 2020 ECCB/RSS ARU Creative Youth Art Competition.

The ECCB/RSS ARU Creative Youth Art Competition hosted and sponsored by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) and the Regional Security System Asset Recovery Unit (RSS ARU), is part of the ECCB’s Community Outreach Program. The program is aimed at encouraging critical and innovative thinking and raising the awareness of secondary school and community college students in the ECCU on issues of economic and social development.

Anique will be awarded a student grant of EC$3,000.00 and CFBC will receive a development grant of EC$2,000.00. Additionally, Ms. Rozna Rogers will receive EC$700.00 for her efforts in mentoring Anique which resulted in this commendable achievement.

Anique’s piece was dubbed “Cultural Awareness: Keeping Our Culture Alive”. Her piece depicted eight characters assembling to celebrate and embrace their different cultures in the form of dance. The characters represent each of the countries of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.

When asked how she felt about winning, Anique responded that she “felt great.” She indicated that “it took a lot of hard work and dedication due to the new normal posed by the Coronavirus but I am extremely grateful to have this skill.”

Also placing in the competition for the age 17-19 category was Odama Tiffany Prince of the Basseterre High School, who placed second, and Khadijah Halliday of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, Saint Lucia, who placed third.

The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College congratulates Anique and the other winners on their achievement!
