The contestants will vie for a chance to represent their parish as cultural ambassadors and compete at the National Coronation. They will be judged on Cultural Awareness, Leadership, Community Involvement and the Performing Arts. The competition under the theme: “Jamaican Women…Shaping Our Culture and Our Nation” is the premier forum for intelligent, culturally-aware and poised young ladies seeking a platform to make their contributions to nation building and to be selected as local and international ambassadors for Jamaica. The Parish Queens will receive cash awards, trophies and gift packages.
This year’s contest will have added flair as JCDC celebrates its 50th anniversary with the Grand National Coronation scheduled for Saturday, August 3 at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre.
