DSC ‘Mas Jamboree’ pageant postponed till April

Ashma McDougall

The much-anticipated Dominica State College (DSC) Mas Jamboree pageant has been postponed until April this year.

Director of Student Activities at the DSC, Ashma McDougall made the disclosure during a press conference held recently.

According to her, Carnival has been long anticipated since the two-year hiatus and the festivities and parades do reflect an enviable experience for ‘Mas Ah Lawi’ 2023.

“The Dominica State College Mas Jamboree Pageant has grown to add value to pageantry in Dominica and we are quite impressed with the evolution of our product over the last 10 years,” she said. “Many partners, stakeholders, and patrons have recognized the absence of the Mas Jamboree product since the launch of the 2023 Real Mas and we wish to capitalize on this opportunity to announce the postponement of our pageant to April 2023.”

McDougall continued, “Our team is currently working through logistics, navigating preparations between our blended modalities of interaction.”

She said the DSC Mas Jamboree Committee remains steadfast in revisiting the structure of the pageant to improve the production in April.

Furthermore, McDougall stated that the value of the DSC Jamboree continues to grow and remains unparalleled, “ as many former Mas Jamboree queens, as well as participants alike, go on to compete on the national stage.”

She informed the general public that more updates will be provided by the committee in the coming weeks and so persons are asked to follow the social media platform (Facebook), which is ‘The Dominica State College’.

Meantime, McDougall took the opportunity to wish all revelers and patrons of this year’s Carnival product a peaceful yet fun-filled gratifying experience.

The last show was held on Tuesday, February 18, 2020.

Law Enforcement Major, Deniscia Laurent captured that title.

    If only Dominica was half as good in all other things as they are with Sewo, partying and carnival… our island would be number ONE in the Caribbean by far.

    Hear, hear. Gobbledygook again to bamboozle the masses. Mas in our country is on dates in Feb. depending on the date of Easter. That is our tradition and not that of noncatholic countries. Why not be honest and say the college is in a mess and you don’t have the funds. I fed up with all this faffing about.

    Mas Jamboree after carnival. That is like Christmas in July. It’s like an invitation today to a wedding that happened 2 months ago. Get your act together and have one next year at the appropriate time. You would think people entrusted in educating our students would themselves demonstrate wisdom; it seems there is an absence of such here.

    “Our team is currently working through logistics, navigating preparations between our blended modalities of interaction.”

    May I suggest that the DSC order a copy of Sir Ernest Gowers’s “Plain Words” and add it to the college library.
