Ricardo Richards School's Moko Jumbies Win Cultural Awareness Award

Jan. 8, 2009 - Ricardo Richards Elementary School's moko jumbies have been chosen as the winners of the 2009 VI Cultural Education Awareness Award, according to a press release from the V.I. Department of Education's Division of Cultural Education.
"After almost 25 years, this award was revived to encourage cultural awareness and appreciation; to further the transmission of cultural knowledge and creativity; and to promote research of authentic elements about our cultural heritage," Division Director Glenn 'Kwabena" Davis said. "It further recognizes and honors entries in local parades and other cultural events for accurately and authentically promoting V.I./Caribbean culture."
The school's entry in the 2008-2009 Crucian Christmas Festival's Children's Parade met the judging criteria for the award which sought historical and cultural accuracy, relevance and presentation (appearance, performance/poise, creative authenticity, organization and evidence of research).
As the winner, the school will elect to participate in one of the upcoming activities: St. Thomas Carnival Children's Parade, St. John Festival Parade, or the Tortola Festival Parade. Travel expenses for a maximum of 30 persons, including chaperones, will be provided.
"We, at the Division of Cultural Education, congratulate the Ricardo Richards Elementary School on this distinction and thank all other entries for their participation. We look forward to continued support and participation in this very vital activity," Davis concluded.
