On March 26, 2014, during his visit to Puebla, Mexico, the Secretary General of the OWHC, Mr. Denis Ricard, met with Mr. José Antonio Gali Fayad, mayor of the City, as well as the young winner in the 14-17 years category of the competition “My City, Our World Heritage”, Mr. Carlos Alberto Ramos Torres.
Messrs. Gali Fayad and Ricard took the occasion to give a prize for a total amount of $500 US and an honorific certificate to the young laureate, in front of an applauding crowd.
Mr. Ricard mentioned “this competition of the OWHC was particularly interesting and pertinent. It made it possible not only to show the involvement and the interest of the member cities of the OWHC toward heritage, but it also gave a chance to the inhabitants of these cities to do the same”.
