Year of Good Health Logo Contest Winners Awarded

The top three winners of the Year of Good Health logo contest were officially announced and awarded before the national and state leadership during their meeting held at the old Olbiil Era Kelulau building in Koror on March 29th.

The contest winners are Niah Yechang Maui, 1st place winner; Angel Joy Pastrana, 2nd place winner and Angela Gail Kasilag, 3rd place winner.

Maui explains her design emphasizes the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, maintaining good health, and spreading awareness about good health to the Palauan people. She further described, “The taro plant represent women as in our culture the role of women is to farm. The deep ocean represents men in Palau as their role is to fish. The baby is a healthy child raised by healthy parents. The words around the logo (‘A Klengar er a Belau a Kot’) mean that the lives and wellbeing of the people of Palau should always come first.”

President Tommy E. Remengesau, Jr. and the entire leadership congratulated the students for their impressive designs as well as all students who submitted their artwork for their efforts and participation.

All three contest winners are senior students from Palau High School. The students were accompanied by their parents, Palau High School teacher Wilhelm Ngiraikelau, school counselor Sue Ngiramolau Joseph, senior student Ritang Mesubed and PHS Student Body Association President Kobe Kertou.

The logo contest was open to all senior students from public and private high schools in Palau. The contest was judged by the Year of Good Health Committee. The winning logo will be used by the Year of Good Health Committee in promotion of activities and programs.
