Basseterre, St. Kitts, (Sunday 5th August, 2012) – It is expected to be another keenly contested pageant but the two local delegates from St. Kitts and also Nevis, are hoping that their efforts would result in having the crown returned to the federation, after it was first captured by Mariece Roberts in 2009.
Delegates from throughout the Caribbean are now on Nevis for the 2012 Miss Caribbean Culture and were hosted to a welcome cocktail party at the Oualie Beach Hotel, on Saturday evening, where they were also able to meet top pageant officials and government leaders.
This year the Dominican Republic will be participating for the first time with Suzan Castano as the representative. The other delegates include, Louise Victor of St. Lucia- Jamilah Forde-Barbados, Marvia Lawrence-Curacao, Annaisha King-Trinidad & Tobago, Trevicia Adams-St. Kitts, Ashley Massiah-St. Croix, Santanyo Mills-Nevis and Marejah Smith of Anguilla.
In 2011, the pageant was won by St. Lucia’s Oneka McCoy.
