Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - The St. Lucia World Heritage Committee is expressing disappointment with the level of public participation in its logo competition being held ahead of an inscription ceremony, officially recognizing the Piton Management Area as a World Heritage Site. Not one entry has been submitted since the initiation of the contest.

The competition is being used to select a logo for the Inscription Ceremony and thereafter, documents and paraphernalia of the Pitons Management Area.

Secretary of the Committee Darnely Lebourne said that though many have inquired about the competition, no entries have been submitted. Mr. Lebourne said exciting prizes are to be won and members of the public should take advantage of the competition. The Committee, he said was looking into extending the deadline originally set for January 30th, 2005.

“The logo is very important, because what it will be is the official emblem of the sight, and that will be used to authenticate promotional material and products and to identify the site, which is the Piton management area”, Mr. Lebourne said, adding, “despite this issue, plans to hold the inscription ceremony is going smoothly”. He has before, called for the participation of the public in this historic event.

“We have a National Organizing Committee; we have had four meetings to date and there is another meeting coming up. There is a smaller planning core, involving the PS and other persons who are intimately involved in the process. We have done sight visits, we’ve had meeting with the police at the level of the Assistant Commissioner of Police looking at Security issues, and generally things are falling in place”, Mr. Labourne said.

Entry forms for the logo competition can be collected at all branches of the Bank of St. Lucia, the St. Lucia National Trust, the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation and the National Commission for UNESCO.
