The three students who came out on top in the Anderson Griffith Memorial Competition two months ago received their awards recently.
Winner Trinity Clarke, the second-placed Akea Barton, and Zane Corbin who finished in third place were among seven students from four schools – the Alleyne School, Frederick Smith Secondary, Alexandra School and Ellerslie School – who participated in the competition during the Royal Barbados Police Force children’s Christmas party on December 16 last year.
Clarke, an Alexandra School student and the reigning Richard Stoute Teen Talent queen, had stunned the judges with her exceptional voice in her rendition of Yet Still I Rise and Diamond.
She was awarded a tablet as well as a keyboard for her school, when the presentation ceremony was held at Police Headquarters last Friday.
Ellerslie School student Barton received a tablet, as well as a trumpet for her school, after being runner-up to Clarke with her performance of Every Year, Every Christmas. She received her prizes from Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Oral Williams.
Williams also handed over the prize of an Android watch to the third-placed Corbin of the Fredrick Smith Secondary School.
