Brereton copped the top prize in the prepared speech category, with Haslam being awarded the top impromptu speaker.

The pair dominated the competition, with Brereton and Haslam also taking the third spot in the impromptu and prepared categories, respectively.

Ruth Ollivierre of the Bequia Brownie Pack and Shontelle Lewis finished second in the prepared and impromptu categories, respectively.

The Brownies spoke on the topic: “What can my Brownie Pack and I do to help end poverty and hunger in St Vincent and the Grenadines?”

The activity was staged as the local Guiding community joined those around the world in observance of ‘World Thinking Day’.

Five Rangers: Courtnae Bailey, Meisha Charles, Brittany Cole, Olivia Haslam and Simone Veira were also presented with the Chief Commissioner’s Award from Chief Commissioner Althea Commissiong during the programme.

The theme chosen for this year was “Together we can end extreme poverty and hunger” with the aim to raise awareness among everyone about the situation and improve the lives of the poorest people in the world.
