In a show of support for public health and safety, and to encourage acceptance and understanding for the mandatory wearing of protective face masks in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cayman National launched the Mask Task Design competition. Supporting objectives included encouraging entrepreneurship and environmental friendliness with a focus on washable, re-usable masks.
Interested persons were invited to unleash their creativity and flair using the rules and guidelines of the competition, and participants across various life stages and backgrounds certainly rose to the challenge.
Two weeks later at the close of competition, Cayman National recorded approximately 50 entries consisting of a vivid array of environmentally friendly, creative, functional, fun and exciting submissions.
It was heartening to note the enthusiasm with which the Cayman Community showed the true spirit of being #InThisTogether. Overall, it was inspiring to see how persons took the circumstance life has thrust upon us and made a beautiful “health first” statement out of it.
Once the Judges had completed the difficult task of narrowing down entries to the top 5 selections, this information was shared among staff and via social media for the votes that would decide winners of categories as well as the overall winner of the competition.
With tremendous response on Cayman National’s Facebook (Cayman National) and Instagram (@caymannational.ky) pages, as well as staff votes garnered internally, the clear winner emerged. The passionate social media and staff votes catapulted the champion Ashley-Jade Peharie to the top, where she won the grand prize of $1000.00. She also top-scored in the social media vote segment, winning an additional award of $50. Four other entrants won gift certificates, with one winner very generously passing it on, donating the prize to the Lean on Me Foundation.
Cayman National would like to thank everyone who participated, submitted entries, voted, encouraged others and shared such wonderful comments. The Cayman National Corporation encourages all of Cayman to continue to protect ourselves by wearing protective face masks/face coverings and keep our Cayman community safe as we come through this season together.
