Miss St Catherine aspirants urged to be culturally aware
Mayor of Spanish Town, councillor Norman Scott, urged contestants to encourage the development of cultural awareness.
"Ladies, in winning this competition, one of the key elements will be the extent to which you are knowledgeable of the history of Jamaica. The culture, the people, folklore and all unique qualities that makes us who we are," Scott said. "As ambassadors for the parish, be mindful that at this very location (the Jamaica Archives) there is a wealth of information available that will put many aspects of our history in perspective."
The queens for the 14 parishes will be crowned July 19.
