Dominica’s winners of the Regional Schools Investment Competition were honored at the Arthur Waldron Seventh Day Adventist Academy (AWSDAA) in Portsmouth, on Thursday.
The Ministry of Education will host a small ceremony to recognize ‘The Gifted Profits’ of Arthur Waldron Seventh Day Adventist Academy as the In-Country winner for Dominica. They emerged winners over ‘Valiant Venturers’ of North East Comprehensive School, ‘Convent High School Communications Club’, ‘The Strategists’, of Dominica Community High School and the ‘Dominica Grammar School Financial Guru’. There will be certificates of participation for the students and certificates of appreciation for the teachers of those schools.
Regionally, The Gifted Profits came in third behind Antigua and Barbuda (Green Magnates Ent., Irene B. Williams Secondary) and Anguilla (Rainbow City Investors, Albena Lake- Hodge Comprehensive School).The competition was developed to be an engaging educational opportunity for high school and first-year college students, and it exposes them to investing while giving them the chance to directly experience the action of the stocks market.
The project, a joint effort between the Eastern Caribbean Securities Exchange (ECSE), the Eastern Caribbean Securities Regulatory Commission (ECSRC), and authorized broker-dealers, aims to pique young people's interest in investing and to pave the way for them to become active market participants in the future.
