Sandy Bay defeated a field of 18 other competitors on its way to taking the top spot. The New Adelphi Secondary School took the second spot while the Mustique Government School came in third.
The Ministry of Agriculture mounted the competition in April of 2018 to encourage the application of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to agriculture, to create an interest among students in agriculture and to present a tool which can enhance teaching and learning.
Registration is now open for the 2019 competition which will run from April to November.
