Three Grace Christian Academy students won in the 2013 Chamorro and Refaluwasch Lunar calendar poster contest sponsored by the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council. Third graders Miku Kimura and Luis Jerome Pascual won second and fourth place, respectively, while fifth grader Jim Michael Ham won third place under the grades 3-5 category.
The winning entries of the art contest from grades K-12 students held in the CNMI were featured in the 2013 Chamorro and Refaluwasch Lunar Calendar. The theme of the competition was “Climate Change Impacts on the Traditional Places that Sustain Our Cultural and Food Security.” This theme encouraged class lessons and discussion on how climate change has or may impact the traditional places and practices that promote sustainable use of natural resources to ensure the island's food security and the well-being of the indigenous culture.
The representatives from the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council came to visit the 3rd graders under Mrs. Manzano and 5th graders under Mrs. Miriam Dilse to give the awards to the art winners last Friday, March 15, 2013. (GCA)
