Castle Bruce Secondary School wins Tourism Youth Congress

New Junior Minister of Tourism Nyana George

Nyana George of the Castle Bruce Secondary School (CBSS) is the winner of Discover Dominica Authority’s Tourism Youth Congress.

The Youth Congress took place at the Arawak House of Culture on Thursday.

She will represent Dominica at the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Tourism Youth Congress in St. Kitts and Nevis in October 2012 and will be named Junior Minister of Tourism.

The congress consisted of two rounds of competition.  The first round dealt with the topic: What is the impact of vagrancy on tourism?  What options do we have for dealing with vagrancy and tourist harassment in Dominica?

In round two students were presented with the topic, Your community, the next tourist paradise? Nyana was able to convince the judges, through her performance and research, that her community, Castle Bruce, was the next tourist paradise.

Jasmine Farrell of the Wesley High School emerged as second place winner and Gordon Royer of the Pierre Charles Secondary School placed third.

Students from the Portsmouth Secondary School, North East Comprehensive School, Convent High School, Dominica Grammar School, Dominica Community High School, Orion Academy and the Saint Mary’s Academy also took part in the competition.

    Congrats, Ms Benjamin has certainly made a difference, assisted by the other teachers – of course. She is a very good teacher, we need more like her and less of the politcal appointees for us to see results.

    Well done Nyana. You made us all (Frayale, CBSS, Riviere Cyrique, New Birth & Restoration Ministries and even Morne Jaune Primary to some extent) VERY PROUD.

    I always knew that you have potential girl. Keep up with the bravery and the spirit of excellence. May the good Lord continue to shine his grace upon you as you continue to work for him.

      And the purpose of your comment is? The article says she attends she attends CBSS, not that she is from Castle Bruce. Someone always has to make a negative comment.
