Bath towel of the Mural
Anaira (6), Gabin (8), Leonardo (11 |), Algaron (12) and Michelle (18) won a bath towel with the mural of TWR, sunglasses and a water bottle with their coloring page.

Mien, the mother of Anaira (6), says that her daughter has been busy with colors throughout the summer. 'She was done with the drawing on the last day for submission'. Michelle is the winner in the 16-99 age group, Michelle is studying to become a graphic designer. "Normally I paint, but I really enjoyed doing this," she says. Algeron, a winner in the 12-15-year age group, said the turtle was the most beautiful animal to color.

Hard to choose the winner
The prizes were awarded by Jonas Fischer, technical director of TWR Bonaire.'In total, about thirty color plates have been handed in. There is a lot of creative talent on Bonaire. It was hard to choose the winners because all entries were done very well’, says Salome Fischer, one of the jury members.

2018 is a special year
Mariette Oosterhoff, TWR Bonaire, says, ‘We organized the color competition because 2018 is a special year for us. In January our transmitter was upgraded to 450 kW, which means that we have doubled the reach of our radio station. In this festive year, we distributed the daily devotional Alimento pa e Alma in Papiamentu for free to all people on Bonaire. For the children, we designed this beautiful coloring plate of our underwater wall. The coloring page can still be printed on this site. 

The Mural is designed and painted by Rita Carswell and Jeannie Villacorte of Mural Art Designs.
