The winner of the 2014 theme for the Anguilla Day celebrations is Mrs Tracelyn Hamilton, Principal of the Vivien Vanterpool Primary School. The theme is: “Reflecting on 1967, reviving the spirit of Unity: Anguilla at 47.”
The announcement of the winner was made by Mr Kenneth Hodge, Principal Assistant Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and Chairman of the Anguilla Day Committee.

Mr Hodge, speaking to media representatives at LIME’s Telecom House where the announcement was made on Tuesday, said the theme was recently approved by Executive Council. He said there were nineteen entries in the competition which was judged by a panel of seven judges and that the entries were of a very high standard.

LIME Anguilla’s Marketing Manager, Jade Reymond, said in part: “We were very pleased to partner with the National Celebrations Committee in its observance of the 47th Anniversary of the Anguilla Revolution and the Anguilla Day Celebrations. LIME is trailing behind as we will be 43 years this year, so it is quite significant for us to be part of coming up with a theme for the celebrations.

“We would like to congratulate Mrs Hamilton and thank all the participants for sending in their entries. LIME will continue to play an active role in the community through these kinds of opportunities that display core principles through valuing every moment in Anguilla.”

Mrs Hamilton was presented with a specially-designed copy of the theme by Mr Hodge, and a seven-inch Samsung Tablet compliments LIME by Ms Reymond. The school principal was grateful for the opportunity to participate in the competition and to LIME for sponsoring the prize. She said she marvelled at the unity of the people of Anguilla in 1967, and thought she should submit a theme which called for the island to be united again.
Meanwhile, responding to a question about the system for this year’s Anguilla Day awards, Mr Hodge said: “I can safely say that we have been holding discussions with the Department of Youth and Culture. We have come up with some very good ideas in terms of giving more of a national flavour to the awards. Those discussions are just preliminary but we expect that next year, and years to come, we will see something that will be more representative of Anguillians and Anguillian pride.”
