Weekes placed first in the whole wheat category at the finals with her entry, beating Joy Celestine of the Girls’ High School into second and Kalem King of the North Union Secondary, third.

Other winners on the day were: Afifa Thomas, Best Rice Dish, Kenisha Grant, Best Brown Rice Dish, Kadeem Browne, Best White Flour Dish and Best Male Entrant Jim Daniel of the Campden Park Secondary School.

Thursday’s competition was considered one of the most keenly contested event in years, and Marketing Manager of ECGC Martin LaBorde in delivering the event’s feature address, confirmed his company’s continued commitment to the competition.

17 schools competed in the tournament.
