15 year old Allison George from Soufriere has won the Miss St. Mark Noel Pageant which was held on Tuesday evening at Scotts Head.
George edged out five other contestants to take the title winning the awards for best talent and the best evening wear along the way.
First runner up was Chisma John Baptiste 14, from Soufriere and Evonna Renault, 15 from Scotts Head received the second runner up spot.
Other awards went to the following contestants: Shernelle Alexander received the best casual wear, Chrisma John Baptiste got the best in evening wear and the best in casual wear went to Malika Williams. The other participant was Shania Tavernier.
Main organizer and one of the sponsors of the event, US-based Dominican, Jeff Bellot, told Dominica News Online (DNO) that the show’s objective was to reunite the three communities after the recent general election.
He said all went well, and they are thinking of expanding to the neighboring community of Pointe Michel.
“It went pretty well actually,” he said. “We had a lot of people at the show and it was so good that I think we are going to do it every year. After almost two decades we never had that show and the turnout was so excellent.”
“My goal next year is to get Pointe Michel involved, so we are trying to expand it to be bigger and better.”
The contestants performed in four segments: the opening round, casual wear, evening wear and talent.
