Bentick, Georgetown.

Persons who fill in at least 25 of the 115 categories will automatically be entered into a draw to win EC$1,000, the winner of which will be selected randomly under the strict supervision of accounting firm BDO Eastern Caribbean.

At the end of the campaign, the winners will be announced at a formal ceremony, which will take place at
