Let’s hear it for the girls

I used to live in Chicago, where they DO say, “Vote early. Vote often.” 

Well, in this case, it’s nearly the last minute, but, if you’re a VI resident you can support two St. Johnians whose photographs are finalists in the Territory’s “Share My USVI” competition, sponsored by the Department of Tourism.  Deadline for voting is Sunday, May 17.

Etre Lisa Etre, a longtime resident multi-media artist, is one of he island’s finalists, and Julia Pergolizzi from East End is the second.

Lisa’s entry is “Keepin’ de Beat” in the Culture and Heritage category. 

Bananaquits Julia’s contribution is a picture of bananaquits at feeding time.

“Julia’s become interested in photography and took a bunch of pictures … and is now a finalist in her age group (ages 11-13),” wrote Louise, her mother. “She’s so excited about it.”

The rules of the contest say only legal VI residents can vote, and only people who are eligible to vote can see the finalist photos.  But anybody can go to www.sharemyusvi.com and see many of the contest’s entries.
