Mr. and Miss Set for Life crowned

Nicholas
Manderson and Aiesha Brown, both 7, are the 2010 Mr. and Miss Set for Life
winners. Each received one year of school supplies and a Jansport bag prize
package compliments of the Set for Life after-school programme and Lee’s Office
Products, at the Mary Miller Memorial Hall on Saturday, 19 June.

Nicholas,
dressed in a light purple long-sleeve shirt, tie and black pants, and Aiesha,
wearing a pink ankle-length evening dress, impressed the judges with their
charismatic personalities and won Best Personality. The two also won Best
Talent and Best Dressed boy and girl. First runners-up Shawn Macky and Jamie
Ebanks each received $100. Cindy McLaughlin received a $25 gift certificate for
Best Smile.

Each
contestant was judged in casual and formal wear, a talent performance and one
question, “What would you do if you were principal for a day?” Contestants did
not fall short of answers; including making sure all the students were OK and
providing breakfast for students, among other suggestions.

The
11 youngsters, six girls and five boys, impressed the judges with their
monologues, songs and dances, and comedy acts.

The
George Town Community Development Action Committee, in partnership with the
Department of Children and Family Services and Power of Faith Deliverance
Ministry after-school programme, staged the talent event for school-aged
children.

The
event was part of the after-school programme to foster a healthy competitive
environment for schoolchildren, teach them good sportsmanship and aid in their
socialisation and training while having fun.

Set
for Life, formed one year ago by Zemrie Thompson of Children and Family
Services, was established for George Town youngsters living on Washington Road.

At
the Power of Faith Hall, a team of community action committee volunteers, with
some outside help, oversee the students from the primary and secondary schools
and provide a variety of classes that involve helping with homework, field
trips, music, sewing, ball games, arts and crafts, speech, health and
counselling.
