WITHOUT God, we are nothing.

These were the words of 19-year-old Alumeci Sevakasiga after being crowned the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival queen 2014 in front of thousands of people at Subrail Park in Labasa on Saturday night.

The emotional Bua beauty could not suppress her tears when she was announced the winner of the week-long event.

Miss Labasa Shayal Jee scooped the first runner-up title while Miss Tukavesi Mariana Rusaqoli took the second runner-up place.

Quoting the Bible, Ms Sevakasiga urged the people of the North to trust in the Lord with all their hearts and lean not on their own understandings.

"I didn't prepare a speech but I am just going to say what's on my mind.

"I want to thank the Lord for His guidance and wisdom and also to my parents for their undying support," she said.

Meanwhile, Mr Dalip Chand and Sons Limited Simione Savou was also crowned the carnival King 2014 and Mr Roof Smart Ratu Tevita Tokalauvere was crowned the first-ever Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival Turaga.

The winning contestants all received complementary prizes. King first runner-up: Mr Banana Leaf Restaurant Wine and Dine, Enesi Rusaqoli. Turaga first runner-up: Mr Satish Motormart Limited, Viliame Taufa Cocker. Teen winner: Sera Sautini Vulava. Teen first runner-up: Annabella Francis Whippy. Princess winner: Susan Singh. Princess first runner-up: Grace Vuata.
