The Zonta Club of Nassau invited all persons to Be Bold For Change on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 as we celebrated International Women’s Day, a global observance celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Each year, the Zonta Club of Nassau holds its United Nations Essay Competition which encourages high school students from all over the Bahamas to submit essays on a theme surrounding International Women’s Day. Numerous submissions were received this year and three finalists were selected.

Please join us in congratulating our 2017 United Nations Essay Competition winners: 1st Place Winner - Ms. Yamille Moss (Aquinas College 11th Grader), 2nd Place Winner - Ms. Lakia Miller (Queen’s College 12th Grader) and 3rd Place Winner - Ms. Maya Francis (Queen’s College 12th Grade). The annual essay competition for high school students opened on Thursday, February 9th, 2017 and closed on March 1st, 2017. The competition was open to all Bahamian resident senior high school students between the ages of 14 – 17 years. The Zonta Club of Nassau would like to thank all of the participants of the 2017 United Nations Essay Competition.

This will be the third time that Aquinas has won this competitive essay competition. Ms. Yamille Moss, the first place winner of the essay competition and a chaperone, will receive an all-expense paid trip to the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September 2017 along with The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the official delegation of the Bahamas who will also be attending.
