Queen contestants ready to impress

CONTESTANTS vying for the 2014 Vodafone Hibiscus queen crown will be judged today on their knowledge of the research topics they were given.

The contestants chose their research topic questions last Friday, which they will present this afternoon at Pasifika Campus in Suva.

"The winner is the one that has the best score from the five judges.

"The aggregate score from all the judges will be tallied and whichever contestant that scores the maximum is declared the winner," judge Ana Tuiketei said.

"Generally, we can't reveal too much on the judging criteria but it will be what they covered in the content of presentation, the way they answer the question given, general knowledge of the topic itself and they will also be judged on decorum and deportment."

Research questions chosen by the queens ranged from NGO and government ministry roles, climate change, cyber bullying and violence in women and children.

Ms Tuiketei said the questions were put together by several people from a range of government ministries, NGOs and other individuals.

"A lot of organisations, government ministries and NGOsS really want to push for education of the role that they play in society, or wanting to give information out," she said about some of the questions this year.

"It covers a variety of bodies and institutions, covering finance, banking, even environment and also sporting bodies. It's a contribution from a lot of other bodies and individuals."
