$50,000 in prizes for Miss Mature contest

MISS Mature Trinidad and Tobago is back after three years.

Founder of the competition, fashion designer Dexter Jennings, said the competition that began in 2004 is better than before with new and improved prizes.

Interested persons need to have only two major qualifications—a talent and be 30 years and over.

The theme for this year is “A Woman of Substance”.

Screening for the event began this week at Dexter Jennings Concept Studio at Pointe-a-Pierre Road in San Fernando opposite Palms Club. 

Twelve women will be selected to participate. 

The competition will be held on June 1, at Naparima Bowl in San Fernando. 

Jennings said the prizes for the first, second and third place winners will be $15,000, $10,000 and $8,000, respectively. 

He said there were over $50,000 in prizes to be won. 

Three persons will also be honoured during the show. 

These include Norman Fullerton, programme manager for the Best Village competition, Ingrid Reuben-Ryan, director of Culture in the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism, and Margaret Sampson-Browne, former assistant commissioner of police.
