I love kids. Especially boys. And another boy stole my heart yesterday at the Barbados Port Inc.’s 50th Anniversary Schools’ Essay Competition Awards Ceremony. He was so small that the Hilton Hotel staff had to put in a riser for him to stand on to read his winning essay in the 9-11 age group.
ZahRah Yaycobe A Yaycobe of The Rock Christian Primary School was awesome. His winning essay was nothing short of creative and his delivery was brilliant. One of the very pleasant musings from this competition was that if our men and boys are under threat from females, then they must be on the come back as boys won out in two of the three categories.
Kudos to Freida Nicholls who leads the BPI’s community outreach program. The competition on How has the Port contributed to the economic development of the island really stimulated interest from our children. Or was it the great prizes of laptops, Ipads and $2000 for the winning school?
Whatever the catalyst, as the mother of an only child, a boy, it blessed my heart to see the ‘stronger’ sex lead.
On aside, after hearing all three winning essays (Taahir Bulbuli, 1st place 11-13 and Fahima Momla 1st place 14-16) ZahRah definitely has my vote for the best overall essay.
