This year the topic that students worked on was solutions for youth employment in the Old Capital. Organizer of the event and partner with the international firm Price Water house Coopers, Mitch Rochelle, says participants from 15 schools got help from mentors from PWC and Peace works to come up with their projects which they present today.
According to Rochelle the annual competition follows on from their regular training conducted during the summer months. Minister of Education Patrick Faber was also present and said that the event encourages mentorship, particularly for some Belizean employees of the PWC firm and partner Peace works. Meanwhile, he committed to listening to and possibly implementing some of the students’ suggestions.
Participating students took home various prizes for their appearances in the event.
