(ZIZ News) — Teenage beauties from Anguilla, Antigua, Dominica, Montserrat, Guyana, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, USVI, St. Maarten and Grenada will join the reigning National Talented Teen Queen Roberitine Webbe on December 30th for the Haynes Smith Caribbean Talented Teen Pageant.
The show is in its 35th year and has a new Chairperson, Akilah Nisbett, who says she is up to the challenge.
“This is my first year as the Chairperson of the Haynes Smith Miss Caribbean Talented Teen Pageant but I have been with the committee for close to 17 years. I have been working as the Contestant Coordinator for the last couple years so now it’s a new role, new post but i’m up to the challenge,” Nisbett said in an interview with ZIZ News.
Nisbett said much is in store for this year’s pageant which will be held at Carnival City in Basseterre.
“Well I’ll say this much, as you know over the years, Haynes Smith tends to do things different so each year, we try to introduce a new element, something different to pageantry and this year, it’s definitely going to be a difference for our 35th anniversary. We just feel like it’s time to shake up pageantry a bit. And so, we’re going to do that this year,” she explained.
The 35th edition of the Haynes Smith Caribbean Talented Teen Pageant is scheduled for Tuesday, December 30th.
