T&T - BP Trinidad and Tobago will increase its support for the Renegades Steel Orchestra in 2018. In commemoration of the Junior Renegades' tenth win of Junior Panorama in 2017 and the steel orchestra's 70th anniversary to be celebrated next year, the company announced a new annual scholarship for one qualifying Junior Renegades band member each year.
