Junior Achievement Company Program Trade Fair

Basseterre, St. Kitts, (7 May 2016) – The Old Treasury Apron will be abuzz with excitement this Friday 13th May with the Junior Achievement Company Program Trade Fair; a collaborative event by the National Entrepreneurial Development Division (NEDD), which is the business support arm of the government and Junior Achievement St Kitts and Nevis. This leg of the JA Company Program competition is the climax of the months of preparation of the JA Companies formed in the various high schools in the Federation.
After months of envisioning, training, and preparing, five (5) schools have made it this far. Basseterre Secondary, Charlestown Secondary, Gingerland Secondary, Verchilds Secondary and Washington Archibald High Schools will vie for top honours at the annual public exhibition and competition.
Judges will keenly assess their booths, looking for creativity, commercial appeal, merchandising and marketing skills and of course quality products and services. The general public will be able to get up close and personal with the staff of the various companies and be able to make purchases and even vote for the people’s choice winner for best booth and best product.
Last year’s winner of the Trade Fair, the Charlestown Secondary school, wowed clients with their products with Verchilds Secondary School placing second.
The Trade Fair will run from 10:00 am to 5:00pm at the Old Treasury Apron at Port Zante.
The National Entrepreneurial Development Division (NEDD) and Junior Achievement St Kitts & Nevis would like to thank the following sponsors, CIBC First Caribbean International Bank, Kajola Kristada, Bank of Nova Scotia, Delisle Walwyn, the Brimstone Hill Fortress Society, Carib Brewery, Island Purified Water and Urban Development Corporation.
