Three make Burgie history


Share post:

FOR THE FIRST time, the Irving Burgie Literary Arts Competition had two first place winners and one school winning the competition in two consecutive years.
Harrison College student Mark Ramsey and former Barbados Community College (BCC) student Racquel Griffith won the first prize in the senior category of the annual literary competition coordinated by the National Cultural Foundation.
Foundation student Nicholas Roach-Holder won the junior category and was also the reason for the Christ Church school to boast that it had won that category two years in a row.
At a prize-giving ceremony yesterday, judge Nailah Imoja reported that Roach-Holder impressed the judging team with his varied portfolio which included poetry, essay and song, showing he had a great imagination and writing skill.  (AH)
