The winner will receive a scholarship from the Ministry of Education to attend the Dominica State College (DSC).

“The winner will also represent Dominica at the Caribbean Talented Teen Pageant to be held in St Kitts this year,” Lawrence stated.

    Beauty contests ruin the self-esteem of young girls and promote unhealthy body images. How many of these kids develop eating disorders later in life because they don’t feel pretty enough? Standards of beauty for these pageants are impossible to meet for everyday life. Parents should be ashamed for entering their girls in these kinds of contests at these young ages. And for us , as decedents of slaves judged and sold for how they looked… this should just not be part of our culture. We need to be teaching substance over style. The pageants are indirectly teaching them that the only way they have worth is if they look good. As a country , as a race, as a community we should , in 2019 be moving away from that

    Congrats ladies. As the 1990 Miss Teenage Pageant, I wish you all the best in your endeavors. Have fun while you are at it and represent your schools and families with smiles. It’s great to see that this is still part of the Carnival celebrations and the experience will be a life lasting one.
