JamKitt Essay Winners Announced

The competition was divided into various categories which included primary school students, high school students and young adults aged 16 – 25. 

In the primary school category, writers were asked “Who is your favourite Jamaican personality and why?”  First place in that category went to: Ceondra Edwards of the Tyrell-Williams Primary, while second place was awarded to Jendayi Omowale of the Tucker-Clarke Primary school. 

In the high school category, participants were asked to: “Discuss your knowledge of Jamaica and its contribution to the Caribbean,” Nicolai Williams of the Charlestown Secondary School captured first place while his school-mate Shannon Morton was second. 

The final category saw writers “Assess the role of Jamaicans in the Caribbean experience of the past 50 years” and was won by Magnus Esdaile, a Washington Archibald High School Graduate, with second place going to Charlestown Secondary High School Graduate Nikki Bussue.

The movies plan to be an expose of Jamaican entertainment and Jamaican cultural documentary.
