Antiguan Student Shines in Caribbean Research Competition

Miss Esther McKenzie from the Trinity Academy

The 16th Annual Caribbean Child Research Conference was held virtually November 24-25, 2021 under the theme “Almost Two Years! COVID-19, Children’s Rights and SDGs: Challenges and Opportunities.”

Students were required to conduct and submit a piece of research on the theme then offer an oral presentation and defense of the research paper.

Miss Esther McKenzie from the Trinity Academy investigated the extent to which students were consulted during the implementation of COVID-19 protocols and whether consultation would have affected their willingness to follow the protocols.

After entries from across the region were reviewed and presenters question by a panel of judges from UWI MONA, Miss McKenzie placed 8th in the region and the only entry from Antigua & Barbuda to be in the Top 10.
