CIBC First Caribbean has come on board as a sponsor for the Jaycess Caribbean Queen Competition for the first time. A release from the committee said it was “extremely grateful for the support.”

According to a release from the committee, Abbott’s Jewellery and Perfumery has once again come on board as a platinum sponsor for the regional competition. Gold and silver sponsors include Antigua Air Station, Glenette’s Beauty Centre and Selkridge Insurance Agency, silver sponsor Caribbean Lottery, and bronze sponsor, to date, Anjo Insurance.

This year 13 young ladies will vie for the title of Jaycees Caribbean Queen 2014.

Under the theme “Nuit de Dames” or Ladies’ Night, Antigua & Barbuda along with representatives from Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Guyana, Haiti, Montserrat, St Kitts & Nevis, St, Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago and USA, will converge at the ARG, Carnival city for a night of pageantry and glamour.

Jaycees committee member, Michael Joseph, says this year’s show aims to empower women. “We’re trying to empower women while at the same time letting them know it’s ok to have fun; good clean fun. Hence the theme.”

The show is scheduled for Friday, August 1st. This will be the 53rd staging of the competition. The reigning Jaycees Queen is Lelessa Shillingford of Dominica.

  1. Carnival season is around the corner and as mentioned in the above caption, we will be having visitors from all the Caribbean islands, and also lots other international visitors. I just returned to the U.S after visiting Antigua. I was so embarrassed to see all the red flags and blue plastic bags and all other sort of ridiculous decorations on all the streets of St. John’s and other villages. Elections are over and now that visitors will be here for Carnival, I do hope the government will pull these “decorations” down and clean the streets of St. John’s. I was so turned off when I saw all this nonsense even after election.
