According to a representative of the company, Yarayni Morton, this year’s competition will be done in two parts as against that of 2014.
“First, it’s the cheering and chanting of the competition, where they have five minutes in which to present. They are going to give us some chants about what their schools, the major accomplishments they would have had, especially if they would have won any competition, or if their school spirit is of a particular caliber,” Morton explained.
She added that the second part of the competition would see each institution preparing a song with a few lyrics about what TDC represents as a company.
“The winner of that part of the competition will be featured in our upcoming promotional material. So, we are going to be doing a bit of rebranding in terms of highlighting TDC as your number one, one-stop-shop,” she said.
According to the soft-spoken Morton, it was a big event in 2014, when the inaugural competition was held and the company deemed it suitable to host another edition in 2015.
“The competitive spirit really came out, and it really brought out a lot of hype in a lot of people… It will bring out a lot of people to the interschool games, which is next week,” she added.
Morton indicated that some five secondary institutions have indicated their willingness to participate in the event, namely the Basseterre High School, Verchilds Secondary, Cayon High School, Charles E Mills and the Washington Archibald High School.
However, they are awaiting responses from three other institutions, Saddler’s Secondary, Gingerland Secondary and Charlestown High School.
The competition is part of the build up to the TDC sponsored interschool athletics meet.
