For the Umatuna Si Yu’os

Saint Anthony Raiders continue to shine as five elementary students and three middle school students placed in an island-wide poster contest, hosted by Homeland Security.

At the end of August, Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense announced that in honor of National Preparedness month, they would be promoting the importance of planning and preparing for both man-made and natural disasters. Saint Anthony students took on the challenge of creating posters entitled “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”

This poster contest is another prime example of how talented and creative these students are. On Sept. 29, 2017, the winners from the contest attended the awarding ceremony at Micronesia Mall. All winners received a disaster plan kit, perfect for any family. Saint Anthony continues to show support to all students as they discover their talents.
