Contest awards locals a chance to name new health complex

St Lucians are being given the opportunity to have a say in naming one of the island’s important structures – the New National Health Complex- through a Name and Logo Contest.

The complex will be located on the Millennium Highway and will feature the New National Hospital, Mental Wellness Center and the Turning Point Rehabilitation Center. It expected to be fully operational in 2014.

Locals are being encouraged to submit their preference for a name and logo for the complex to the ministry of health by noon on August 20, 2013. This is the second such appeal since 2012.

The Ministry of Health, Wellness, Family Affairs and Gender Relations in a release said that a second plea was necessary since only a limited number of submissions came from the first appeal.

“Submissions should project a national tone and the logo design should be both simple in composition and in its use of colors, befitting a health institution. The rationale for the proposed name and logo is also to be included with the submission. The name must also be original, creative, and possess a simplicity befitting a hospital facility. It should be able to be adaptable to electronic and printed media, scalable in different sizes of application Individuals may opt to submit a name only or a logo only or both. Multiple entries are allowed,” the release said.

The contest will award individual winners of the name or logo contest with EC$1,000 each.  The press release further said that individuals who submitted entries after the first appeal could either withdraw or resubmit their names and logos.

The final selection will be done by a seven-member committee comprising of a number of individuals including health and arts professionals and representatives of the public. All entries become the property of the ministry of health.

Participants are asked to make their submissions in sealed envelopes with the caption “Submission for Name and Logo for the New National Health Complex” in addition to their names and relevant contact information in block letters on the face of that envelope.

All submissions are to be addressed to:
The Director
Bureau of Health Education
Ministry of Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations
Sir Stanislaus James Building
Waterfront, Castries
