"THIS win is dedicated to my parents," were the words of 20-year-old Fiji National University student Doreen Kata who was crowned Miss Farmers 2014 on Saturday night.

Miss Kata, who represented Lautoka sector and was sponsored by Kiran Palace, is studying at the FNU Namaka Campus to become a Customs officer.

She said the overwhelming support from her family and friends helped her with the carnival preparations.

"I think this carnival has helped me grow as an individual and impacted my life on various levels," the lass from Vatulaulau in Ba said.

"It has encouraged me to do a lot of charity work and give back to the community."

She said completing her studies at FNU was next on the cards.

"Now that the carnival has finished, I will engage myself in more community projects.

"It has been a great experience with the girls and I would like to urge the younger generation to consider participating in the Farmers Carnival," said Ms Kata.

Carnival committee president Udit Narayan said the carnival, which was organised by the National Farmers Union, had been a success and he thanked the public for their support.
