The Young Authors Competition invites children under 18 who attend primary and secondary school in Gros Islet or who belong to the Grow Well Library to write a short story on a theme based on Grow Well’s 20th anniversary motto: caring, sharing, volunteering and helping others. The competition honours Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy for her love of country and devotion to education. Entry forms are available at school offices and at the Grow Well Centre in Gros Islet.
For this 20th anniversary, Grow Well sponsors and supporters have ‘gone all out’ and have been extremely generous with prizes including nine Kindle Fire HD tablets, books by St. Lucian authors, e-book certificates and many other exciting gifts and books. The competition closes March 17 and a grand award ceremony is planned for March 25th at the Gros Islet Secondary School in Beausejour. Grow Well’s principal sponsor is the Rotary Club of Gros Islet.
