GEORGETOWN –23-year-old Nikita Archer, a teacher, will represent Guyana in this year’s regional Miss Jamzone pageant. The announcement was made earlier this evening by pageant coordinator for Hits and Jams Mrs. Dascia  Clarke.

Jamzone 2010 will be the first to feature regional contestants. It runs from August 14-22.

Organizers say the move is to not just improve the image of the contest, but rather amplify the footing of Guyana as a tourism destinations.

Some of the islands competing against Guyana for the coveted crown include Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, Barbados and neighboring Suriname.

“Jamzone 2010 is a very great undertaking,” says Hits and Jams Director Kerwin Bollers.

Director of the Guyana Tourism Authority- Mr. Indranauth Haralsingh, endorses the move. He says the initiative is undoubtedly a positive one and offered the support of the Tourism Minister himself.

Instead of the customary grand prize of a car, Hits and Jam –which celebrates its 10 anniversary this year says it will instead offer the winning beauty a US$10,000 purse.

Event sponsors include the Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), which has been on board for 4 years. The beverage company says it considers the event a positive contributor to the Guyanese economy and lauded the work of the organizing committee.

Another sponsor –ASHMINS/SPLANSMINS –a venue host has been on board from the event’s genesis. Its marketing director used tonight’s launch to announce clothing rights the company has attained for the event.

Jamzone merchandize can be purchased at the ASHMINS retail outlet.

“We want to be associated with the best…” the director said.

Moreover, this year’s event is expected to put Guyana on the regional events calendar on par with the likes of the St. Kitts Music Festival, Vincy Mass and others.

International artistes that will perform include world renowned NEYO and MOVADO.

Patrons to this year’s events will have the opportunity to cash on on-the-spot promotions of Digcel and ANSA McAL. Digicel will make available its spin and win wheel while ANSA McAL will says there is “a lot to come for Jamzone through hits Carib Beer brand.”
