Ju­nior Achieve­ment St. Lu­cia hosted its 2nd an­nual JA Trade Fair on Fri­day, May 8th, 2015 in the Derek Wal­cott Square. The event was made pos­si­ble through the sup­port of Land­mark Events and af­forded the JA Com­pany Pro­gramme par­tic­i­pants an op­por­tu­nity to mar­ket their prod­ucts or ser­vices to the gen­eral public. The items on dis­play in­cluded pa­per jew­ellery, del­i­ca­cies made from pump­kin, frozen fruits, mugs, tie-dye cloth­ing, bags and snacks.

With a to­tal of 26 stu­dents and 9 teacher ad­vi­sors who rep­re­sented 7 sec­ondary schools, the event was a suc­cess and a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all par­tic­i­pants.
