Seven contestants have been chosen from a field of 12 as the 2013 Carnival Queen Pageant completed another round of eliminations at the Arawak House of Culture on Saturday night.

The 12 contestants appeared in one and a half minute segments of talent, swimwear, evening wear and question and answer.

The final seven are:

Kelshia Breezie- St. Joseph

Leslassa Armour-Shillingford- Castle Comfort

Fatima Noel- San Sauveur

Melinda Ulysses- Stockfarm

Nickisha Philbert- Laudat

The seven finalists will now move on to the Miss Dominica pageant set for Friday, February 08, 2013.
