Four stu­dents from the Raki­raki school were among win­ners of the poster com­pe­ti­tion fa­cil­i­tated by Par­lia­ment. PSHS Year 10 stu­dent Srdha Devi, who won the first prize for the sec­ondary school cat­e­gory, said the idea of democ­racy was what mo­ti­vated her to draw her win­ning poster. Shivnita Lal, a Year Six stu­dent of Rishikul Pri­mary School in Suva, scooped the first prize for the pri­mary school cat­e­gory. “My par­ents used to con­duct UNDP work­shops in Labasa and I al­ways had the priv­i­lege of ac­com­pa­ny­ing them. From such trips, I learnt a lot and it has helped me with my art­work,” she said. Par­lia­ment Man­ager Civic Ed­u­ca­tion and Me­dia Unit Va­ti­mosi De­lailovu said the art­work was looked at and win­ners de­cided by a panel of judges com­pris­ing of se­nior Par­lia­men­tary staff.
