Thursday, May 25, 2023— Dominica’s winners of the Regional Schools Investment Competition were honored at the Arthur Waldron Seventh Day Adventist Academy (AWSDAA) in Portsmouth, today Thursday, 25th May, 2023.
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 were third after Anguilla: (Rainbow City Investors, Albena Lake- Hodge Comprehensive School) and Antigua and Barbuda: (Green Magnates Ent., Irene B. Williams Secondary).
The competition was created to be a dynamic learning experience for high school and first-year college students and introduces them to investing while providing the opportunity to experience securities market activity firsthand. The initiative, which is a collaborative effort of the Eastern Caribbean Securities Exchange (ECSE), the Eastern Caribbean Securities Regulatory Commission (ECSRC) and licensed broker-dealers, aims to stimulate an interest in investing among young persons and to create a pathway for young investors to become active market participants in the future.
