Telecommunications sponsor LIME, will be giving one of the participating High schools for this year’s ISSA Boys’ and Girls’ Athletic Championships, $100,000 for a project, two desktop computers and an all-expense-paid concert featuring popular artiste Potential Kid.

Dubbed, ‘Ah Yah So Nice’ – inspired by the artistes’ chart-topper by the same name – the text-in promotion is open to all 200 schools, including faculty and students.

“ ‘Champs’ in an Olympic year naturally creates an extraordinary buzz, however it is also Jamaica’s annual Olympics and for the students participating it is a chance of a lifetime. We feel that the ‘Ah Yah So Nice’ text promotion gives us at LIME a chance to really ‘nice up’ the experience for one lucky school” explained Stephen Miller, sponsorship manager.

“For us it is also another practical demonstration of our firm commitment to helping the nation’s youth to achieve through educational opportunities.  We are in our third year of partnership with ISSA and we are already seeing excellent return on our investment, which is more than a cash investment, but an investment in the potential of the young people that participate. ” Miller added.

To enter the ‘Ah Yah So Nice’ text-in competition students, teachers and alumni are being encouraged to text the name of their school to a 444-5463, where the school with the highest number of votes will be selected as the winner.

LIME will also be offering sports fans, a chance to get schedules, updates and results via a special ‘App’ available to users of BlackBerry devices.

Other deal-sweeteners being spearheaded by the telecoms company, includes the staging of a mega Fun Zone at the National Stadium where students and spectators will have the opportunity to compete in a series of mini-sports competitions for prizes .
