7 to vie for Miss DSC Mas Jamboree pageant

The pageant contestants

Come March 4, 2011, when the Dominica State College hosts its second edition of its DSC Mas Jamboree, seven college beauties will hit the stage to compete in the Miss DSC Jamboree 2011 pageant.

The young ladies are secretarial major Ann-Marie Cornelius; Dwannella James who is enrolled in the tourism program; Daina Matthew, an economics and literature major and Jernelle Jno Baptiste who studies biology and information technology.

Terisa Lewis, who majors in architectural technology, Zethra Baron, a psychology major and Normanna Jno Baptiste, who majors in nursing will also compete.

The winner of the pageant will be awarded a scholarship from the DSC which will cover their full tuition as well as gifts and prizes from sponsors.

The intention of the pageant, according to organizers, is to use the DSC as a breeding ground for the national queen pageant.

The pageant will come as part of a  grand show which will include a calypso show and band splash.

Michelle Joseph, a contestant in the national queen pageant, is the reigning Miss DSC Mas Jamboree.

The event is organized by the Student’s Services Department of the institution.

    February 18, 2011

    All the young ladies are winners in my book. Personally I’d opt for Nos 1, 3 & 6.

    It really amazes me why the young ladies ever enter competitions in Dominica with all the critical and neagtive remarks made by individuals.

    Encourage them for the fact that they are brave and confident enough to enter these pageants.

    I’m sure the critics would be hurt if it was a member of their family that others were unfairly judging.
    Thank heavens that some of those commenting on DNO are not on the judging panel.

    Advise! WARNING! If you are wearing mini skirts, knee- hi, or just plain showing skin. Please lotion ( (or as DOMINICANS say cream your skin lol) those parts prone to dryness, dullness, ashy looking grey! Like the elbows, the knees, the ankles! Yes, rub on some moisture on those delicate parts. Your body will love you for it! The camera can’t hide those flaws!

      To all those who reponded to “BUTTER SKIN” ALL OF YOU NEED to make cocoa butter your best friend. I mean whoever butter skin is gave a good advice. The person did not point out one girl or criticise one soul! Young ladies should take care of their skin,especially if they want to be in the public spot light! What’s Wrong with saying that they should lotion up? Now you all took it sooooo personal to even respond. I have the nerve to point out a couple of them well have ashy body parts!
      I mean let people post their vibes man. Oh chah man!

  40. Future Queen Contestant
    February 17, 2011

    Contestant number 6 (from left to right) (light skinned) looks more queenly to me. She looks very poised and confident. Good luck to all of the ladies.

    • orator
      February 17, 2011

      i,m not interested in the pegeant, i checked this story to have a look at the beautiful people that DA produces. ladies u are all beautiful. future queen your are a typical racist, light skinned my foot. that is why you will be positioned after last when you become a future contestant. i hope u change your outlook on life, beauty is not measured by the colour of your skin!!!! u simple need spectacles. you behave like the cow, when there was a draught, grass was brown, the owner place a greensun glasses on the cow face. it began to eat grass.

      • AD
        February 17, 2011

        I think that you misinterpreted this remark. light skinned is just a way of identifying the contestant…. and admittedly the FAIR SKINNED girl is quite poised, AND in my opinion so is contestant # 3 (from left to right) (DARK SKINNED with RELAXED hair).

        beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

          totally agree with you. this orator person just wanted something negative to say. all the young ladies look beautiful however contestant number 6 is just more poised.

        • yup
          February 18, 2011

          contestant number 6 looks like thats her thing.anywayz that ORATOR person the individual was only identifying the young lady and giving her her propz. I really don’t kno whats your deal so tell us? oung ladies it took a lot of courage.do your very best

    How could the organizers schedule the show on the same night with the National Queen Pageant which is on March, 4th?!?!?

    “Michelle Joseph, a contestant in the national queen pageant, is the reigning Miss DSC Mas Jamboree.” I want to know how Michelle going to crown her successor when she will be busy at the National Queen Pageant. I hope they know that most college students will be in Pottersville savannah supporting Michelle…

    Just reschedule the show for Thursday 03rd, March eh!!!!

    Don’t know that I could ever be in favor of these women pageants. None of them.

    They seem oh so much as if the young ladies are commodifying themselves for thirty pieces. True, someone introduced other elements to these pageants that have them showcasing some talents: for example in the fine arts, in education, in promoting a social cause. Those minor additions are what, to my mind, give them some measure of respectability. But there it ends.

    Inevitably, these women pageants place overwhelming emphasis on the exploitation of woman sexuality. That should be reserved for the bedroom. And these teenagers and twenty-something-year-olds are not yet emotionally and psychologically mature to endure and manage the stress that their sexual exploitation bring.

    I am saying this, also, to highlight the fact that sexual predators seem to be on the loose in our country. Is it me, or am I reading too much here?

    Call me old-fashioned. I still believe in the equality of women and their God-given abilities to compete with any of us men in the vast tapestry of human endeavors. It’s what I’ve always raised my daughters to believe. I have the same hope for all our young women.

    • hmmm
