“Celebrate and Co-operate for a green El Dorado state” by Naomi Harte – 2019

This ostentatious piece was meticulously designed to illuminate the theme for Guyana’s National Child Art Competition 2019, “Celebrate and Co-operate for a green El Dorado state”.

It places empahsis on togetherness and co-operation among the heterogenenous nation, and therefore earned second place at the competition aforementioned.

The evident significance of the green colour on the drawing is Guyana’s forest and green economy. Oil, as we all may know, remains one of the nation’s most valuable resource that has contributed significantly to Guyana’s bright future and ensured continuous development of the country’s wealth. The mask of varying colours represents one of Guyana’s most colourful events, Mashramani, a festival observed to commemorate Guyana becoming a republic. It denotes “celebration after hard work”. The variations of Ethnic groups, along with the joined hands at the centre of the artistic piece, embodies co-operation among Guyana’s people, as the motto, “One People, One Nation, One Destiny”, is embraced.

This piece designed by Naomi Harte, a sixteen (16) year old girl at the time being, is now of the possession of one of Guyana’s Ministry departments in association with the competition.

My Family by Naomi Harte

I love my family,

their the best,

my father comes home late,

so he doesn’t get to rest.

My mother works three times a week,

if you get her mad she will beat.

We often drink tea early in the morning,

when your tired it’s usually cost for yourning.

Every one in my family is very bright,

my dad is the best,

so he could fix the lights.

My mother drives a car,

and my  father drives a bus,

they’re both very young but they don’t like to curse.

My brother born first,

my sister second,

and I’m last,

every day after school we have a blast.

If you’re looking for a strong, healthy and hardworking family,

remember to call me.

Flowers by Naomi Harte

I like roses,

because they are red.

I smell them everyday,

before I go to bed.

I also like violets,

because they are blue,

flowers are colourful,

do you think so too?

The World by Naomi Harte

The world is filled with many countries,

like Guyana , Argentina , Mexico and Italy,

these countries are known for many things,

like sugar, rice and jewelleries like rings,

but they are many other countries that are wealthy too!

like USA, Brazil and Peru.

This world is not only filled with countries,

but with people, animals and trees,

this world is beautiful in every way,

or by magic people might say,

but no matter how many crazy things people might say,

I love the world that I live in everyday.

Fashion Girl by Naomi Harte

She walks down the street at four in the morning

and shows no stress mark.

When we ask her where she’s going,

she always says the park.

She  always walking up right,

and never get into a fight.

She is a fashion girl

a fashion girl with hope, joy,

and laughter,

which she keeps forever,

she always wishes the best for you,

no matter what she’s going through.

The most faithful person I have ever seen,

but if you asked me , I think she’s the fashion queen.
