FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida -- Bahamian student Marie Irene Ajero presents an artistic hand painted aviation chock to President of Florida Air Museum, John Burton at the recent Sun N Fun Aviation Show, Lakeland, FL.
Ajero, a 12th grade student at St. Francis de Sales School, Abaco, was the overall winner of the annual Bahamas Out Island students artistic chocks competition sponsored by the aviation department of The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation.
The Signature Chocks program is a public relations initiative of BMOTA’s aviation department and serves as a means of exposing Out Island students to the aviation business while simultaneously using these winning students as young Bahamian ambassadors exposing pilots to the beauty and diversity of The Islands of The Bahamas.
Over the years winners of the competition have attended aviation trade shows with BMOTA staff to assist in promoting the beauty and ease of flying to the Bahamas. The young people are given the opportunity to present the unique, artistic chocks to key aviation executives as a premium give-away item. This year, the student winner, while sharing about The Bahamas, her island and her school, presented chocks to the President and CEO of the Florida Air Museum as well as to Mr. John Leenhouts, President & CEO. of Sun N Fun Aviation Show.
