National Awards still August 31
Saturday, August 16 2014
NOTWITHSTANDING a call by President Anthony Carmona last year for the annual National Awards ceremony to be held on Republic Day, this year’s ceremony will remain on Independence Day, August 31, though it will be “scaled down” somewhat due to the unavailability of the National Academy for the Performing Arts in Port-of-Spain, officials said yesterday.
On September 28 last year, Carmona suggested a move of the awards to Republic Day as he addressed the Commander-in-Chief Parade at Chaguaramas. The President said, “I would... like to submit for discussion among the various stakeholders, including the national public, a proposal that next year, the annual National Awards be moved from Independence Day to Republic Day, that day which gave birth to the creation of the President who is the Chancellor of the Order and who is the one in whose name these awards are conferred.”
