By MyVue Staff Reporter

Basseterre, Friday, 17th September, 2021, (MyVue News.com)-The Carnival Committee in St. Kitts & Nevis has started its campaign for this year’s 50th Anniversary of the annual festival by introducing the contestants who are expected to participate in the Queen Pageant Competition and the Swimsuit Contest, later in December.

The virtual event, which was dubbed, the “Royal Reveal” was held over a two-day period, with the five (5) Queen Contestants appearing in a live television interview, on Wednesday, shortly after being revealed in a spectacular video, recorded at the picturesque Kittitian Hill.

The five contestants are Sakia Evans, Sasha Herbert, Harsha Parmanand, Nekirah Nicholls and Kahnein Blanchette.

Those vying for the Swimsuit Contest will be Ro-Danna Wilkin, Valencia Kelly, Mikahlia Stephens, Shantara Hewlett, and Ngozi Nicholls. They had their Reveal on Thursday night.

The contestants were selected months ago but due to the ongoing challenges posed by the Coronavirus, the preparations for their launch had to be suspended, said a carnival official.

No dates have been released as yet for the two competitions, but the Chair of the Carnival Committee, Shannon Hawley, has disclosed that arrangements are being finalized for the “sashing” of the contestants and the announcement of sponsors.

This year has proven somewhat difficult to attract sponsors said Hawley, because of COVID-19, but some firms have already made commitments to support the various events of the carnival.

Next on the agenda of the Carnival Committee, is the release of entries for the Song Competition. Hawley said that about 11 submissions were made and the Committee is pleased with the creative work produced by the local artistes.

The slogan being used for this year’s version of Sugar Mas, is Fun, Vibe, Energy!
