May 6 is the date for award winners

The University of the West Indies Open Campus Grenada will be hosting its annual T.A. Marryshow Memorial Award and A.A. La Grenade Award on May 16 at the Marryshow Folk Theatre.

The Marryshow Cup and the La Grenade Shield are markers of the excellent performances by young people in the CSEC Examinations.

The Marryshow Cup Award has been presented by the University since 1977 and the La Grenade Shield since 1995.

The recipients of these awards have continued the pursuit of excellence through the attainment of Baccalaureate degrees, Masters’ degrees and Doctorates in a number of differing fields including Engineering, Medical Sciences, Business Administration and Food Science.

The selection process for these awards is a rigorous one.

Members of the UWI’s Territorial Advisory Committee, in a highly detailed process, review the grades of all the nominees and make a selection based on the most outstanding performances.

The Marryshow Cup awardee must demonstrate excellent grades in CSEC English Language, Mathematics, Information Technology and Caribbean History, along with the best four subjects which must include one of the following: a foreign language, Chemistry, Biology, Agricultural Science and Integrated Science.

The A.A. La Grenade Shield is presented to the student who has demonstrated excellence in technical and vocational studies at the CSEC level, in three groupings; including but not limited to Art, Technical Drawing, Building Technology, Electrical and Electronics Technology, Home Economics Management, Information Technology, and Food and Nutrition.

This student must also demonstrate excellence in English Language, Mathematics and one Science subject.

Both awards are based upon the results of one CSEC sitting that is, the sitting of May-June of the year of the award.
