The Supreme Ventures Foundation has awarded scholarship of $200,000 to four students to fund their education for one year. These youngsters were campers at the Junior Creators Robotic Camp and were honoured for their brilliance across a range of categories. The campers, Katalima Baroo of Independence City Primary School, Malia Simpson of St. Andrew High School, Robeano Davis of Waterford Primary School, and Raheim Daley of St. Francis Primary earned the title of “super achievers” for exhibiting a superb attitude, excellent performance, and teamwork throughout the series of the camp.

“We are happy to award these scholarships to these driven youngsters because we will be enabling them to advance and receive the support they so richly deserve. One of the Foundation’s cornerstones is to support young, brilliant minds in our nation, and this scholarship opportunity is just one more way we’re showing how committed we are to doing so,” said Supreme Ventures Foundation director Heather Goldson.

The Junior Creators Robotics Camp, which lasted five days and took place at Ardenne High School, introduced primary school-aged children (ages eight to 11) to the design, construction, and operation of Lego and robotic engineering while teaching them the value of teamwork and having fun.

“All the children executed well, but those four kids really stepped it up with their dedication, attitude, and collaboration abilities, which made them the super achievers. As part of our commitment to social responsibility, we had to play our role just as the children played theirs. Through these scholarships, we will keep changing lives for the better because we are totally committed to it, “ Goldson said.
