Digicel for the second year provided support encouragement for the teachers and coaches who assisted students in the recently concluded and extremely popular secondary schools quiz competition, Knowledge Bowl.
Dubbed the “Intercol of Academia,” the competition attracts competitors from 4th and 5th forms in all public and private secondary schools in Grenada, Petite Martinique and Carriacou who compete on their knowledge of educational topics.
In the 2013 competition, Digicel once again provided prizes for the teachers and coaches of the top two winning schools. This follows on from last year when the winning schools each received a Blackberry handset.
This year the coaches of the first placed school, St Jospeh Convent St. George – Karina Degannes and Kendrina Lewis – each received a Huawei media Pad compliments Digicel.
The second place winner was the St. Andrew Anglican Secondary School and both coaches each received a Samsung 5330 handset.
“We are once again demonstrating that Digicel is committed to supporting the youth of Grenada and is in support of those who encourage excellence in our young people,” said country manager Patricia Maher.
“We would also like to congratulate the organisers and other sponsors once again for a job well done”, she added.
For the past six years, St. Georges University has partnered with Flow and the Grenada Co-operative Bank to bring this event, which has the endorsement of the Grenada Principal Association, to the Grenadian public.
