On Feb. 27, Wynsome Ferguson, manager of the Abaco Tourist Office, presented a $200-cheque to Monet Brown of St. Francis de Sales School for her participation in the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Essay.

Last year, Monet, a 12th grade student, competed in the senior division of the FCAA Essay Competition to become a finalist.

Ferguson explained that the cheque was given to Monet for her participation and placement in the final round of the essay competition.

Monet spoke on the topic – “What makes my destination different from others?”

In her response, Monet talked about The Bahamas’ culture, its beauty, and the abundance of natural resources like blue holes. She concluded by expressing her appreciation to FCCA noting that the time and effort she had put into the competition had been well worth it.
