Nine beauties to contest Miss SVG 2008

The nine, Emmelin John, Jolene Toney, Karen Whiskey, La Toya Lewis, Nekesha Adams, Ronique Dellimore, Shanel Green, Shanel Nanton and Tamisha Nichols, were chosen by a panel made up of the Minister of Culture Rene Baptiste and members of the Board of Directors of the Carnival Development Corporation (CDC), to take part in Miss SVG 2008.

Training for this show encompasses stage performance, physical fitness, interview skills, media & public appearance, personal development and grooming.

This year the contestants have the added advantage of being able to receive the benefit of the experience of past queens. Michelle Fife, Laferne Fraser and Melissa Yorke, all university graduates, are in state and are actively involved in the training process for this year’s competition.

The nine contestants will have their first official introduction to the public at the launch of Vincy Mas 2008 on Saturday, 3rd May.(JSV)
