Common Entrance Examinations results came out earlier this month, and Vizions Entertainment, organisers of this year’s inaugural Super League football tournament, are teaming up with main sponsors, Grace Foods, to provide secondary school scholarships to children of football players.
At the closing ceremony of the Super League, which was won by Gros Islet, the organisation’s secretary indicated that in the new school year five scholarships would be awarded.
The various football leagues will submit nominations to the Saint Lucia Fooball Association for consideration, and the SLFA and Vizions would select the five recipients.
The Visions / SLFA scholarship will cover the cost of books, whilst Grace representative Chanelle Bailey said her company had agreed to provide each scholarship winner with a Grace product basket every month.
The nomination process is now underway, and teams are invited to identify and nominate persons for the awards. The students must be children whose father, mother or legal guardian is a footbal player registered with an SLFA affiliate.
Teams must submit letters along with a profile of the child, his or her book list and a background profile of the family.
