The other contestants are Shannon Morgan, Ms Glen, a student of the Bishop’s College Kingstown; Sasha Joseph, a crowd favourite, who will ignite the patrons as Ms Choppins. She is a first year hospitality student of the Division of Technical and Vocational Education of the SVGCC. The vivacious Mya Frazer, final year, small business management student of the Division of Technical and Vocational Education of the SVGCC will greet patrons as Ms Diamond. The culturally diverse coastal fishing community of Calliaqua will be represented by Angelique Parris, a former student of the St Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua.

According to June Goodluck Mc Queen, coordinator of the Miss St George Pageant, the eight young ladies have been in training for the last four weeks and are bursting with energy, talent, beauty and intelligence and patrons can expect a competitive show.

The young women will make four judged appearances, swimwear, talent, evening gown, and interview. The show will also see the staging of the East St George Soca and Calypso competitions. Other activities hosted by the St George Carnival Committee this year include J’Ouvert and street party, on Saturday, June 8 and Kiddies Carnival on Sunday June 9.
