Haiti - Education : Laureates of the text contest on the Battle of Vertières
27 young people from 9 departments from 9 departments across the country (the Nippes delegation was absent) participated in the event.
Following the rules established by the organizers, 3 laureates were chosen by department for the quality of their text.
Laureates of laureates :
First with a score of 90 out of 100: Janvier Darline, St Michel College of Charpentier (South);
Second with a score of 88 out of 100: Jacob Efrantzka Theodore, Institution St. François Xavier (North).
Organized by the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training in partnership with the Presidency, this contest has allowed these young people to reflect on the Dessalinian ideal and the prowess of Vertières in order to provide ways to face new challenges faced by Haiit today.
Maxime Mesilas, the Director of Secondary who spoke on behalf of the Minister Cadet, delayed because of difficulties on the road because of bad weather, stressed the importance of this initiative aiming at enabling young people to put their potential to good use. Other contests will follow during the year, he said.
Wilson Laleau praised these young people who have distinguished themselves by the quality of their text and took the opportunity to provide advice to these young people for the success of their academic and professional background by insisting that Haiti has been a beacon for the world at the beginning of the 19th century and that our turpitude, our bad choices and infighting led us to the situation of today. It is possible to take up the torch, according to him, if we adopted another way of doing by inspiring us with the heroes of Vertières.
Each of the 27 laureates present received in prize a laptop from the Presidency and books will also be offered by the Ministry.
