Ten vie for Miss Morant Bay High title

Jolyn Bryan, STAR Writer

Ten beautiful young women are set to compete in the finals of the inaugural staging of the Miss Morant Bay High Pageant on Saturday at the Morant Bay High School in St Thomas.

Organised by the 6th-form management of business students, the show is the first of its kind and came out of plans made in the small business management aspect of the course, but which have now taken on a life of their own.

Receiving approval from the principal, Mohan Kumar, and finding a supportive audience with students, staff and parents alike, the event could become a yearly occurrence.

Claudia Johnson-McDowell, 6th-form coordinator, explained that there was no shortage of applicants among the young ladies. Of the 20 who entered, 10 were eliminated in two preliminary rounds of judging.

The girls also paid courtesy calls on the mayor and custos of Morant Bay and are working closely with teachers to perfect their grace, poise, and talent pieces.

It promises to be a night of pageantry and entertainment, with judging of eveningwear, casualwear and talent pieces interspersed with dance groups and artistes giving live performances.

The young ladies will be vying for the top prize of a laptop computer and trophy, while the first runner-up will receive $10,000 and the second runner-up $5,000.

Tickets for the 6 p.m. show are on sale $300 pre-sold and $500 at the venue, and proceeds will go to the purchase of folding chairs for the school.
