Six gorgeous ladies will contest the prestigious Miss North Leeward Queen Show 2013 at the Petit Bordel Hard Court on Friday as North Leeward Carnival activities climax this weekend.

The six beauties are: Miss Troumaca, 18-year-old Fayasha Lewis, sponsored by Providence Electronic Solution; Miss Chateaubelair, 16-year-old Kayana Stephens, sponsored by Sensaytionz Ltd.; Miss Petit Bordel, 16-year-old Ocean Edwards, sponsored by Chance Unique Furniture; Miss Rose Bank, 19-year-old, Kaywana Laborde, sponsored by Das Entertainment and Gold Fever J’ouvert Band; Miss Fitz Hughes, 17-year-old Deshia Murray, sponsored by Skittles J’ouvert Band; and Miss Golden Groove, 19-year-old Shakelia Anthony, sponsored by Chateaubelair Service Station.

They will be judged in four categories — Interview, Talent, Evening Wear, and Swimwear. A special award will be given for the contestant that is most popular on the social networking website, Facebook.

The event is also expected to see performances from the energetic former Soca Monarch and Road Monarch winner, Delroy “Fireman” Hooper, and former Calypso Monarch, Maxwell “Tajoe” Francis, among other artistes.

Pageant Coordinator, Rolmina Matthews, is appealing to persons in the North Leeward constituency to support the pageant

She said the event promises to be bigger and better this year.

Matthews, while expressing confidence in the young ladies, stated, “I promise they (patrons) won’t be disappointed.”

Meanwhile, Kenville Horne, public relation officer of the North Leeward Sports Association, organisers of the carnival activities, is also appealing to persons to supports the contestants.

He explained that entering a pageant is not easy, and takes courage.

“These young ladies have dedicated their time and effort to entertain and please the viewing public. So treat them with respect; they are all queen in their own right,” he said.

Horne further appealed for peace during the climax of the carnival activities in the constituency.

“We don’t want anyone to fight, which [could] result in a premature end to the carnival activities and a distaste to revellers. The police have a zero tolerance with regards to fighting,” Horne said.

Kenesha Edwards is the reigning Miss North Leeward. The carnival activities will conclude on Saturday with a j’ouvert and an evening jump-up, respectively, featuring j’ouvert band, “Gold Fever”.
