Jamali Jack of iMaculate iMagez unveiled the quiz’s website and disclosed that it was a way to make the quiz more accessible to students.

He also explained the various features of the site, which made it interactive and user friendly for visitors, such as Bible study videos and audio for passages from the Bible.

In addition, Jack also displayed the quiz’s official logo and gave a thorough explanation about the meaning behind it.

“A logo is something that is very important when you’re trying to build a brand,” he said.

The logo is of a graduate with an open book and features a magnifying glass on a mitre, which Jack said signifies the Bible search as it relates to the quiz and also a tassel in the form of a cross, which represents a spiritual education.

Regarding the quiz and participation, Joel Jack, the coordinator, said that the actual participation for this year was less than in previous years.

“The quiz fell short of the participation targets we had set,” he said.

However, it is the hope that the new logo and website will promote the quiz for 2013 and enhance participation.

Awards were presented to students who participated in this year’s quiz.

Darren Quammie of St Clair Dacon Secondary School won the November segment of the quiz and received a bible, EC$100 and a gift certificate, compliments Acute Cosmetics.

Also, Romano Rodney of Adelphi Secondary School received the frequent participant award, earning himself a cheque for EC$600.

The most outstanding school award went to the St Vincent Grammar School, who walked away with a cheque for EC$1,600 and a plaque.

Kenichia Charles, a former Girls’ High School student, was given the Distinguished Graduate award and received a Kindle Fire and EC$300.

Guest speaker Luke Browne congratulated the winners.

In his address, he said that it was now their job to be ambassadors of the programme, as well as for Christ.

Moreover, Browne pointed out that there was a lot more work to be done.

“We have to think of how we can engage students before they get to secondary school,” he said.

He also suggested that the winners get together and lobby for religious education in schools.

Jehann Jack, in her vote of thanks extended gratitude to the various contributions received from businesses, including but not limited to GECCU, Acute Cosmetics, COURTS, iMaculate iMagez, and Right Stuff. (BK)
