The Laureates for the Anthony N. Sabga Caribbean Awards for Excellence were named on Friday February 6, 2015, at the TATIL Building in Port of Spain.
This marks the tenth anniversary for the awards, and the introduction of a new category, Entrepreneurship. However, the selection panel for the Awards (The Eminent Persons Panel) did not
find any nominees they felt appropriate to be given the award in Public & Civic Contributions for 2015, though a joint award was made in Science & Technology.
The 2015 Laureates are:
Arts & Letters: Dr Paloma Mohamed, poet, playwright & academic from Guyana
Entrepreneurship: Mr Herbert Samuel, energy consultant and entrepreneur from St Vincent & the Grenadines
Science & Technology: Prof Suresh Narine, a bio-technologist from Guyana
Science & Technology: Prof Patrick Hosein, a Computer Scientist from Trinidad & Tobago
The Anthony N Sabga Caribbean Awards is the only programme in the Caribbean which seeks out and rewards outstanding nominees in Arts & Letters, Public & Civic Contributions, and Science & Technology, and as of 2015 Entrepreneurship. It has been in existence since 2005, and was, till 2010 a biennial award, at which time it became an annual award.
The prizes are worth TT $500,000 each, and each laureate receives a medal and citation at a ceremony in April. For further information, visit us at www.ansacaribbeanawards.com, or on Facebook. An introductory video is available on our YouTube Channel (ANSCAFE).
