BASSETERRE, St.Kitts (THURSDAY 10th AUGUST, 2017)- A children’s essay writing Competition for a chance to win a laptop has been launched by community activist and youth empowerment enthusiast Dr. Terrance Drew, caretaker for Constituency Eight of the St.Kitts-Nevis Labour Party.
The announcement was made on Sunday 23rd July during the third annual ceremony for the Dr. Terrance M. Drew Scholarship Award held at the Cayon Community Centre.
Eligible to participate in this competition are primary school graduates of Constituency Eight who will be attending high school for the new school term in September 2017.
Essays should be at least 500 to 600 words covering the topic: “The Importance of Technology In Today’s Educational World.’
All entries should be submitted to email@example.com by Friday 25th August, 2017.
The adjudged winning essay will be announced at Dr. Drew’s annual Back To School Fair slated to take place on Saturday 2nd September in Conaree. There, the successful student will be presented with the grand prize.
Dr. Drew has informed that the idea for a competition of this nature came about from a conversation he had with a grade six male student who was curious as to whether he would receive a laptop when he goes off to high school.
“I am not in a position to do it but what I have decided to do is to host an essay competition for all the students who will be going to high school for the first time,” he told the audience.
Additionally, he spoke about the usefulness of technology in education.
“To stay ahead we have to keep up with technology otherwise the world will pass us by.”
St. Kitts-Nevis had always been on top when it comes to education. Outside of the Federation, our people would always excel and exceed wherever they go.”
Dr. Drew is quite aware that the youngster’s curiosity stemmed from the one-to-one laptop programme that was introduced under the former Labour Party administration which aided the technological development of the nation’s youth.
