Contestants 'well versed'

WITH only a few more days before the Hibiscus festival begins, King contestants are well versed with what they are going to deliver during the public judging.

Apart from rehearsing and doing indoor activities to keep them occupied the contestants are reaching out to various communities to make them aware about the effects of climate change.

Vodafone Hibiscus Festival King contestant co-ordinator George Nacewa said the main purpose of the activity was to help the contestants' public speaking.

He said this was a good opportunity for the gentlemen to believe in themselves and build their confidence.

"We chose USP because different students from other Pacific Islands attended this school and this is also one of the best places to start off with.

"Since Hibiscus is just around the corner we encourage the king contestants to advocate on the issues they are passionate about and get them to be more practical," he said.
