APIA, Samoa (September 18, 2001 - Samoa Observer/PINA Nius Online)---The five most beautiful villages in Samoa were named recently during a Samoa Visitors Bureau National Beautification Program awards ceremony.

Each village received a certificate and a check from the beautification committee, which is made up of representatives from various government departments.

More than WS$ 40,000 (US$ 11,616) was spent on prizes, the bureau said.

The contest began in the 1990s to help promote tourism.

Winners were Manase, Leusoalii, Leauvaa, Lalomalava-Safua-Vaisaulu, and Faga-Siufaga.
