Advice for contestants

SUVA City Council special administrator Chandu Umaria yesterday reminded the Queen contestants of the 2014 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival of the important role they would play for Fiji after the festival.

"After winning the crown, you will not only be representing your sponsor but you will be an ambassador for the City of Suva and our beloved country of Fiji to the Miss South Pacific pageant," Mr Umaria said.

Mr Umaria and SCC hosted the Queens, Kings, Princesses and Princes and Teens to a morning tea at the Civic Centre — a usual tradition of the festival.

He thanked the contestants for their courage in entering the Hibiscus Festival, assuring them that the City of Suva was already proud of them.

"Whatever the judges' decision as to who will wear the crowns of the various category contests, I know that this week will be of tremendous benefit to all of you and remain among your happiest memories."

Mr Umaria also acknowledged the sponsors of the festival.
