According to an Executive from the community-based organization, 5 schools will be participating in what has become a family event. The schools are the Immaculate Conception, Irishtown, Bronte Welsh, Saddlers and Sandy Point Primary Schools. They will each have two representatives (1 boy and 1 girl) participating in the event.
MiyVue understands that the extravaganza which was conceived in 1989, will once again aim to enhance the creative talents of all participants, to further develop self-confidence, creative and public speaking skills, among other competencies, of the nation’s youth. Participants are expected to make one appearance in each of the three segments which are Induction, Talent and Youth Formal Wear segments.
Over the years, the activity has acted as a stepping stone for a wide cross-section of aspiring artistes, such as, Winnielle Guilbert, Chief Executive Officer of Winnielle Model Management; Jermul Huggins, International Songstress and Oval Lake, former OECS Junior Calypso King, to name a few, who have honed their individual talents to achieve success in their fields of endeavour.
Asked why the event took a two-year hiatus, a representative of the organising committee told MiyVue that it was done for a number of reasons including the need to consider recommendation about the improvement of the show.
“We took a number of suggestions and recommendations from the schools and we decided to sit down and go through them. We thought that the time should be taken to revamp the show and look at the way forward. We have revamped the format of the show but there are some of the basic elements which would remain the same.”
This year’s event is slated for Sunday 19th December 2010.
