STAR Pub­lish­ing 30th An­niver­sary Es­say Com­pe­ti­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - TAR Pub­lish­ing The Es­say June 2017.

SCom­pany Ltd. would like to ex­press much ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated in our 30th an­niver­sary es­say com­pe­ti­tion.

We’re also ex­tend­ing our grat­i­tude to our sup­port­ive spon­sors: Courts St. Lu­cia, First Caribbean Bank and Na­ture’s Best, who share with us sim­i­lar mo­ti­va­tions in en­cour­ag­ing our youth to be pro­duc­tive, and pro­mot­ing ed­u­ca­tion. com­pe­ti­tion has, from in­cep­tion, aimed to put into the spot­light the writ­ing skills of the is­land’s stu­dents and we are thank­ful and im­pressed with the out­come.

“We are al­ways happy to see the par­tic­i­pa­tion of young peo­ple when­ever we host com­pe­ti­tions of this na­ture,”

Ed­i­tor Kayra Wil­liams com­mented. “It is en­cour­ag­ing to see the in­ter­est is there. So far we’ve seen some ex­cep­tional work on a range of top­ics, and we look for­ward to re­ward­ing these very de­serv­ing stu­dents and fea­tur­ing them in our 30th an­niver­sary sup­ple­ment.”

Claudia Elei­box, or­ga­nizer of the es­say com­pe­ti­tion added, “The ed­i­to­rial de­part­ment was de­lighted to re­ceive so many en­ter­tain­ing and in­ter­est­ing sub­mis­sions. I’d like to com­mend the par­ents and teach­ers who made spe­cial ef­forts to help chil­dren in their par­tic­i­pa­tion. Sub­mis­sions came from all over the is­land, in­clud­ing Vieux Fort Com­pre­hen­sive and Anse Ger Sec­ondary schools.

“It is en­cour­ag­ing to us, as a pub­lish­ing com­pany, to know that in the fu­ture there will still be an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for writ­ing. More so, it will be mem­o­rable to us that this year we spent the month of May, des­ig­nated as ‘read­ing month’, read­ing and judg­ing the work of the youth.”

The judges are dili­gently as­sess­ing the con­tent and style of all the sub­mis­sions. Win­ners will be an­nounced and awarded on Wed­nes­day 14 June 2017 by staff of Pub­lish­ing Co. and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of spon­sor­ing com­pa­nies. The win­ning es­says will be pub­lished in our 30th an­niver­sary news­pa­per sup­ple­ment on Satur­day 17
