Cayman Islands 2017 Storyboard competition winners

Storybooks were brought to life by school students last weekend in the annual storyboard competition held at a reading fair in George Town Public Library.

Organised by Cayman Islands Information Professionals (CIIP), 106 children from schools around Grand Cayman took part in the competition.

Prizes included Kindle HDs and Bose headphones, which were provided by Rotary Sunrise and the Cayman Islands Public Library (CIPLS). All the students received certificates of participation for their colourful and informative presentations and their storyboards will be on display until Saturday, 18 February.
“This particular event is a storyboard competition where students creatively produce an artistic and factual board interpretation of their favourite book,” said CIIP Chairman and CIPLS Deputy Director Paul Robinson. “The submissions are judged on information about the book such as plot characters and how that information is expressed in terms of clarity, creativity, thoroughness, interest invoked and quality.”

CIIP is a professional library and information science association which was founded in 2013 by information specialists, living and working in the Cayman Islands, to promote literacy and libraries by the exchange and use of information and knowledge.

The storyboard competition was judged on different age groups and divisions, with the winners as follows:
Group A ages 5-8: Matthew Huys. St. Ignatius Catholic School.
Group B ages 9-12: Catherine Whan Tong. Cayman International School.
Group C ages 13-18: Samruddhi Tagalpallewar. St. Ignatius Catholic School.
Group D ages 5-8: Johann Uy and Cohen Ting. St. Ignatius Catholic School.
Group E ages 9-12: Emma Collins and Nazli Clarke: St. Ignatius Catholic School.
Group F ages 13-18: Oisin McGeough and Joshua Weaver: St. Ignatius Catholic School.
