The Performing Arts Workshop is announcing that registration for the Ms. Ti Matador 2013 competition is now opened.

The show is expected to take place in October during the independence season.

Registration is opened to female students from any primary school on the island between the ages of 8 and 11.

One of the organizers, Regina Walsh, said the event is being held to promote culture in the schools.

She said the competitors will be judged in four categories: promotional speech, talent, wob dwiyet and spectular wear.

Promotional speeches are expected to be done in Creole or Cocoy, if the student is from the Marigot area.

Due to circumstances beyond the organizers’ control the show was not held in 2012 but Walsh is promising a great show this year.

“The show is in its tenth year and we want to make it grand,” she said. “That is why we are starting early in terms of registration and getting it out there for schools to register students who are interested in the show and to get sponsors.”

Deadline for registration is May 15th.

Interested persons and schools are asked to contact Regina Walsh at 614-2020 or Jacinta David 265-6408 for registration forms.
