Secondary schools across the territory have been invited to be part of the recovery plan for the British Virgin Islands.
The Ministry of Education has initiated a competition for students to develop ideas for the recovery plan. The winning idea will then be presented to Premier Dr Orlando Smith for consideration.
Each secondary school, whether public or private, should be represented by a team comprising five students in Grades 11 or 12.
They will be required to use government’s proposed recovery plan as a template to develop ideas for the territory.
“Each team will be required to submit a summary or synopsis of their plan to the Ministry of Education by February 5. The teams will then be required to present their overall plan to an audience and panel of judges that will comprise of key stakeholders in the recovery effort on February 8,” the education ministry said in a release.
The winning team’s plan will be selected as the model document which will further be perfected before it is presented to the Minister for Education Myron Walwyn, and then to the Premier.
The winning team will receive a $10,000 cash prize which will go towards ‘any project students deem essential to the development of their school’.
