(NASSAU, BAHAMAS) — For the ninth year in a row, Custom Computers Ltd. is carrying on its tradition of rewarding outstanding students across the nation through their annual “A’s for Excellence” campaign.

Founded in 2007, this campaign invites students at the primary and secondary levels who attained ‘A’ subject grades on their final report cards for the 2015/2016 academic year to enter into a random drawing for the chance to win one of two grand prizes.

Carrying on yet another tradition, the Family Island school which submits the most ‘A’ grades will be awarded a state-of-the-art multi-function machine — printer, copier, scanner, fax — including installation and supplies.

“We are committed to recognizing and rewarding our nation’s youngest minds for stellar performance in their studies,” said General Manager Melissa Miller-Strachan. “This year we are grateful for the Ministry of Education’s support in helping us to get the word out to as many school administrators, educators and students as possible, and we look forward to our continued partnership in growing this rewarding campaign.” 

New Providence students are asked to bring a copy of their final report card or transcript, as well as a government-issued photo ID, to any Custom Computers location — Harbour Bay, Cable Beach or Old Fort Bay Town Centre — to submit their entry. Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Family Island students may enter online by visiting www.aforexcellence.com.

A student’s name will be entered into the raffle for up to 10 ‘A’ subject grades. Therefore, if a student has 10 ‘A’s’, his or her name will be entered into the drawing 10 times. The more grade ‘A’s’ the students attain overall, the greater their chance of winning.

There is no purchase necessary to enter this contest. Making a purchase at any Custom Computers location will not increase a student’s chance of winning.

Entry deadline for submissions is 3:00 PM on Sunday, August 14th, 2016. There will be no exceptions made. The random prize drawings will take place on Saturday, August 20th and will be streamed live on the web.
