ZBVI awards 'General Knowledge Quiz' winners & participants

ZBVI awards 'General Knowledge Quiz' winners & participants

Waking up early mornings to do research and phone-ins on time has paid off for ZBVI’s Quiz Kids as ZBVI recently recognized the accomplishments of the General Knowledge Quiz participants.

The top students and their parents, along with sponsors and supporters, were recognized at a pizza party at Virgin Queen in Road Town where Anniah Williams from the BVI Seventh Day Adventist School claimed the top spot.

Coming in second place with a tie were three students: DeJoie Sebastian of Elmore Stoutt High School, Elyon Jones of the BVI Seventh Day Adventist School and Analisa Percel of Cedar International.

Two students tied for third place, Ryan Prince of the BVI Seventh Day Adventist School and Teshae Baptiste of the Elmore Stoutt High School.

ZBVI is the Only AM Radio Station in the Virgin Islands playing a Mix of Contemporary Music, News and more.

Students can achieve whatever they want - ZBVI MD

Managing Director at ZBVI Delker Herbert Vardilos told the students that they can achieve whatever goals they set. She reminded the parents and students of how important the quiz and celebration were to her father, the late Merrit Herbert, who originated the General Knowledge Quiz many years ago and was very passionate about seeing young people grow.

“We remain grateful for the investment from the sponsors, the community, the staff of ZBVI, and the parents. With all of our efforts, we can help the territory’s young people build knowledge and a strong foundation for the future. My father was very passionate about seeing young people grow, and so am I. It’s important to continue this legacy,” Ms Vardilos said while thanking parents, the quiz’s sponsors and supporters, ZBVI’s staff and the community for continuing to support the children.

Ms Vardilos also spoke about the need for persons in the engineering field as well as Media and Communications overall.

“One of the things we are struggling with at ZBVI is finding persons in the field of engineering locally. So if I need my tower fixed, I have to look for someone probably in the U.S. or St. Thomas,” she added.

Students were also reminded that they have talent, and she challenged them further. “If you love communications, go away, study and come back and help us out.”

The guest speaker, Michael Frett, a previous ‘Quiz Kid,’ shared a few words at the gathering. He encouraged students to become familiar with current events. “Know what is going on around you, and apply that knowledge in your daily life. It is a continuous process,” he said.

The students were also encouraged to read books and not allow electronic tools to always be their ‘go-to’ option. She also referenced exciting changes to the quiz format for the upcoming school year.

The General Knowledge Quiz is sponsored by J & C Trading, James Todman Construction Company, Hon. Marlon Penn, Hon. Melvin Mitch Turnbull, Hon. Julian Fraser, Newton Construction, and LJD VI Block. Mrs. Gracia Stevens serves as the judge for the quiz.
