The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

From Novem­ber 28th – De­cem­ber 1st 2014, Ms. Genel Do­minique, a stu­dent of the Vide Bouteille Sec­ondary School will be rep­re­sent­ing JA St. Lu­cia and her Company “Vide Bouteille All Out” at the JA Amer­i­cas Company of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion. She will be ac­com­pa­nied and sup­ported by JA par­tic­i­pant Ms. Chelsea Berke­ley, teacher ad­vi­sor Ms. Vi­vian Nel­son and the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of JASLU Ms. Agnella Joseph. The event will be held in Quito, Ecuador.

The JA Company of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion is JA World­wide’s an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of the achieve­ments of stu­dents across the Amer­i­cas Re­gion (South Amer­ica, Cen­tral Amer­ica and the Caribbean). At the event, JA Com­pa­nies will proudly present the re­sults of their en­ter­prise, dis­cuss learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and ap­pear be­fore a panel of in­de­pen­dent judges who will de­ter­mine each company’s per­for­mance against the com­pe­ti­tion cri­te­ria.

The goal of this event is to bal­ance the business achieve­ments of each team as a whole with each mem­ber’s in­di­vid­ual per­sonal de­vel­op­ment. For a team to win this award, it is not suf­fi­cient just to run a fi­nan­cially suc­cess­ful JA Company or cre­ate an ex­cit­ing prod­uct/ser­vice. Team mem­bers must demon­strate an un­der­stand­ing of how and why the company per­formed as it did. Judges will look for ev­i­dence of in­no­va­tion and ap­pli­ca­tion of new ideas in all as­pects of a company’s op­er­a­tions.

JA St. Lu­cia wishes to sin­cerely thank USAID and FedEx for their gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions to­wards the event and would fur­ther like to ex­tend best of wishes to “Vide Bouteille All Out” as they em­bark upon their jour­ney.
