The Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) chose nine institutions to take part in its Clean Coasts, Tourism Action Club Research Day and Competition, recently held at the Terra Nova hotel in Kingston. In the end, Westwood High School, located in Stewart Town, Trelawny, came out winners in 2 categories.
Each institution was required to demonstrate the impact that solid waste has on Jamaica’s tourism product. They were to demonstrate this impact through the use of 3-D models, multimedia presentations, songs and skits.
Westwood won for Best Display Done by a Secondary School as well as for the most creative display.
The initiative although co-ordinated by JET, was funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF).
