(CNS Local Life): Books were recently brought to life by students taking part in the annual storyboard competition held at a reading fair in George Town Public Library Saturday, 11 February. Organised by Cayman Islands Information Professionals (CIIP), 106 children from schools around Grand Cayman participated, and all received certificates for their colourful and informative presentations.
The storyboards will be on display at the library until Saturday, 18 February. Rotary Sunrise and the Cayman Islands Public Library Service (CIPLS) provided the prizes, which included Kindle HDs and Bose headphones, for the winning entries.
“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
Group D, ages 5-8: Johann Uy and Cohen Ting, St Ignatius
