The winners from all divisions were:

Daphne Brooks-Penn, PPC’s manager of corporate services and company secretary, presented the students with their awards and encouraged them to share the joys of reading with their friends and family.
“You truly put a lot of thought in your designs, and through your creativity you were able to depict and highlight the ways we can all encourage and promote reading in the TCI,” Brooks-Penn said.
“At PPC we stand committed to investing in the local community and specifically we enjoy being an active sponsor in any event which promotes and encourages the development of our youth. PPC would like to thank the Ministry of Education for allowing us the opportunity to be part of positively shaping your minds and future.”
