With the pur­pose of pro­mot­ing, re­cruit­ing and mak­ing peo­ple aware of health pro­fes­sion­als who of­fer French-lan­guage health ser­vices in Prince Ed­ward Is­land, the first Étoile Santé gala will take place in March 2016 to cel­e­brate the in­di­vid­u­als who have been rec­og­nized since the be­gin­ning of the Étoile Santé cam­paign in Jan­uary 2015 ‒ P.E.I.'s health ser­vices providers who of­fer French-lan­guage ser­vices to the Is­land's Aca­dian and Fran­co­phone com­mu­nity.

In or­der to be able to award an Étoile Santé prize dur­ing the gala, the PEIFHN is look­ing for an artist to de­velop an art­work that is sym­bolic of the cam­paign. The cho­sen art­work will be hand­made and ap­pro­pri­ately-sized to be pre­sented on stage at the Étoile Santé gala and ex­hib­ited in the var­i­ous work­places of win­ners.

To be el­i­gi­ble, an artist must be able to speak French and be a res­i­dent of P.E.I.

The dead­line to sub­mit a pro­posal is Jan. 31.

The artist whose art­work is cho­sen will re­ceive $500 (in ad­di­tion to the pro­duc­tion costs).
