Seven young women between 12 and 21 years of age will compete for the title of ‘Miss Clarendon Police Youth Club Movement’ on Friday, July 28 at the St. Gabriel’s Anglican Church Hall in May Pen.
The competition will be held under the theme: ‘Sexually Healthy, Crime Free Living: It’s Worth Having’.
Corporal Cornel Stewart, Police Youth Club Co-ordinator for Clarendon, told JIS News that one of the aims of competition was to help the youngsters become more confident.
“This competition really seeks to help the young women improve their self worth and to increase their awareness of what’s happening around them and in this way we can have better citizens in our nation,” he said, adding that through the pageant, communities also get to interact with the Police.
“We are always about fostering better relations with our communities and this is one way in which we believe we can accomplish that, and of course this will help to improve our image,” Corporal Stewart added.
Contestants hail from the communities of Race Track, Gayle, Canaan Heights, Milk River, May Pen, Longville Park and Pennants.
The new Clarendon Queen will receive trophies and other prizes and will compete for the national title on August 20 at the National Police Youth Club Camp to be held in Lacovia, St. Elizabeth. The show will commence at 7:00 p.m.
