Tuesday, April 18, 2006 The Government of Saint Lucia is expected to unveil a National Heroes Monument within the next fifteen (15) months.

The National Heroes Monument is part of a wider plan to establish a National Heroes Day in order to recognize persons who have made valuable and continue to make unique contributions to the development of Saint Lucia.

The Ministry of Social Transformation, Culture and Local Government signed an agreement with Saint Lucian artist Mr. Ricky George to design and produce a National Heroes Monument on Tuesday, April 18th, 2006. The design for the monument was reached through a national competition where Mr. George emerged the winner.

The monument will be located in a National Heroes Park the options being the George V Park in Castries and Prevost Park on the Morne. A committee has been commissioned to explore and select the better option. The cost of the statue is US$156,900.00. The initial cost paid to Mr. George is US$37,000.00, the contribution of the Government of Saint Lucia.

A National Heroes Park Steering Committee has been set up and it is anticipated that the Committee will raise the balance of funds through a national campaign.
