The CTO’s Caribbean Primary School Tourism Writing Competition for 2017, the CTO Year of Adventure in the Caribbean, was held for children ages 8 – 12 in every CTO member country, and sought to encourage both creative and formal writing submissions related to strengthening sustainable tourism development in the region.
The competition had TWO (2) distinct entry streams:
a. The Formal Writing Stream – works that count as either essays or prose
b. The Creative Writing Stream – works that count as poems or short stories
Winners will be presented with a special Certificate of Recognition from the Caribbean Tourism Organization and honoured with an ALL EXPENSES PAID TRIP for them and a Parental Chaperone to attend and participate in special activities at a major CTO Conference in 2017.
