The Zonta Club of Nassau, Bahamas, invited all to Be Bold For Change on 8 March 8th as they celebrated International Women’s Day, a global observance celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. 
Each year, the club holds its United Nations Essay Competition, which encourages high school students from all over the Bahamas to submit essays on a theme surrounding International Women’s Day.

The 2017 winners are: Yamille Moss, first place (Aquinas College 11th Grader), Lakia Miller, second place (Queen’s College 12th Grader) and Maya Francis, third place (Queen’s College 12th Grade). The competition was open to all Bahamian resident senior high school students between the ages of 14 – 17 years. 

Moss and a chaperone will receive an all-expense paid trip to the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September, along with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the official delegation of the Bahamas.
