Six young ladies will vie for the Miss Leeward 2015 title on Friday at Petit Bordel Hard court in a show that will include contestants from the three Leeward constituencies.
Three of the contestants are from North Leeward.
They are 18-year-old Miss Rose Hall Philicia Whitney Ashton, a student at the Community College; Miss Chateaubelair Zeshain Adams, a 21-year-old graduate of the Community College; and Miss Fitz Hughes Melony Woods, 17, a student at Petit Bordel Secondary School.
Two contestants hail from Central Leeward, namely, Miss Layou Lanesha John, a 17-year-old Girls High student; and Miss Barrouallie Brean Gloster, 21, a former student of Buccament Bay Secondary School.
The other contestant is from South Leeward. She is Miss Questelles Camille Cammiasha Myers, 18, a student at the Community College.
Contestants will appear in various judged and non-judged categories, namely, Miss Congeniality, Most Community Spirited, Facebook People’s Choice Award, Miss Photogenic Award, Swimwear, Eveningwear, Talent, and Interview.
After the pageant, there will be J’ouvert from Petit Bordel to Fitz Hughes, starting at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday and a street party at 3 p.m.
Coordinator for the pageant, Rolmina Matthews, has promised an exciting pageant, saying, “This is something you don’t want to miss.”
Meanwhile Kenville Horne, public relation officer of the North Leeward Sports Association, the organisers of the events, appealed for a violence-free carnival in North Leeward.
Horne said non-residents of North Leeward are expected at the show and urged constituents to “display our creativity and show what we have to offer”, adding,
“We have an exciting package waiting.”
