Announcement of TARD Logo Competition: sponsored by Leliana Firisua

The To'abaita Authority for Research and Development (TARD), a volunteer student group that was formed late last year in August 2005 by North Malaita scholars at the University of the South Pacific is pleased to announce a logo competition for its letterhead and website.

Prize: FJD$100 cash for the best logo (sponsored by Mr Leliana Daowana Firisua)

Eligibility: Open to only To'abaita or part-To'abaita students in all the institutions in Fiji.

- the logo must be unique to North Malaita or To'abaita
- it must be reflective of the vision and goals of TARD
- it must promote peace, reconciliation and rural development
- it must not plagiarize other existing logos
- only 1 entry per person can be accepted and no co-artists
- it can either be drawn by hand or computer

Deadline: 25th June 2006

Entries with contact details can be emailed or hand delivered to any of the TARD leaders.

Meanwhile, TARD is also pleased to update our members that we have received a good will contribution from one of our supporters in Honiara, Mr Leliana Daowana Firisua and family. The actual amount has been emailed to all TARD contacts. The funds will be used towards the logo competition and the opening of a TARD Cheque account with ANZ Bank to kick start our planned activities. On that note, we wish to formally thank Mr Leliana Firisua and family for the financial support which empowers the group to move forward to another step.

Other latest developments is that TARD has already compiled a working paper for North Malaita Constituency and is being circulated for feedbacks from members. After that a final paper will be drafted and submitted to our national Member of Parliament and To'abaita leaders in the Solomon Islands, as a guideline towards the formulation of a workable development plan for North Malaita Constituency over the next four years.

Furthermore, upon suggestions from our working elites in Honiara TARD is also pursuing the appointment of a 5 member committee to be based in the Solomon Islands as our network to oversee our plans as well as advancing the TARD concept to fellow To'abaitans in Honiara and Malaita.

Finally, TARD is thankful to all our continuous supporters both in the Solomon Islands and abroad for your confidence in the initiative that we have taken. Through collective efforts we can overcome anything.
