Judah Smith-Dyer of CedarBridge Academy, Jordan Smith of Chatmore British International Academy, Ajani Robinson of Mount Saint Agnes Academy, AJ Smith of The Berkeley Institute and Trey Vance of Impact Mentoring Academy were shortlisted for the event being hosted by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity’s Bermuda chapter.
