“I commend Kervinica Webbe and McKebou Tross for doing a fine job on the quiz. I also thank the teachers and parents for working with the students and instilling the knowledge that led them to be winners,” commented the Premier, after distributing trophies and gifts to the participants.
The three-round competition hosted by the Ministry of Tourism as part of Tourism Week 2012 was conducted by Quiz Master Ms. Claudia Walwyn, and included questions on Culture, Environment, Geography and Caribbean Tourism.
