Dominica’s National Queen Competition

The Carnival season on the island of Dominica is gearing up full speed. As a prelude to this year’s Carnival season the 2013 MAS Domnik team has launched the Queen Contestants who will compete in the island’s annual show. The National Queen Show is an annual competition which draws beauties from across the island to compete in talent, swimwear and public speaking. 

This year, seven young ladies have been selected and will represent their respective communities as they vie for the coveted Carnival Queen title. As a customary part of the pre-carnival activities, the girls are launched in their respective villages, each contestant having an opportunity to be showcased in her village or town on a specific day amongst family, friends, and supporters alike. 

On November 17th, three young ladies were presented to their communities. Daina Matthew representing Canefield, Jeanne Royer representing Goodwill and Melinda Ulysses representing Stockfarm. 

On Saturday November 24th Kelshia Breezie representing St. Joseph was launched while in the village of San Sauveur, on the same day, Fatima Noel was also launched.

Leslassa Armour-Shillingford  representing the communities of Newtown, Giraudel, Loubiere, Castle Comfort, Wall House, and environs was launched on December 1st. Nickisha Philbert representing Laudat was also launched on the same date.

The National Queen competition is carded for February 8th 2013 and by all accounts is expected to be a kaleidoscope of fun, culture and Dominican beauty on display.
