The 2011 winners, the St. Pauls Primary School, will defend its title against representatives from 20 different schools that will be seeking to walk away with the cash prize on offer.
The Public Relations Officer, (PRO), of the St. Kitts & Nevis Amateur Athletic Association, Mr. Evris Huggins told MiyVue.com On Wednesday that the top 5 schools will be awarded monetary prizes, with the winning school receiving $1,000.
Huggins also added that his association is expecting a number of records to be broken at the event, if they are to judge from the performance of some athletes in the recent development meets.
He also revealed that the SKNAAA is welcoming new sponsors Delisle Walwyn and Company Ltd, and announced that they have agreed to cover the travelling costs; which Huggins revealed was one of the major event expenses.
The meet will begin at 1:00pm on Friday 30th March and continues until Sunday 1st April.
The SKNAAA official also stated that some schools will not be able to compete as a unit but the athletes of these institutions will appear as individual participants.
Over 600 athletes are expected participate in the championships.
The SKNAAA is anticipating another weekend of keen competition but it is too early to predict the outcome.
