Salaseini Moceiwai

THOUSANDS of spectators were in good spirits during the variety night of the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North on Saturday when contestants took to the stage their impressive and educational message of protecting the environment.

Draped in creative and stunning attire, the contestants all had a chance to briefly explain to the enthusiastic crowd the relevance of their costumes to the theme, "Our Environment, Our Future".

One contestant wowed the crowd with his inspiring blue African-styled dress depicting the blue ocean with its healthy marine ecosystem.

King contestant Nimilote Naisorotabua believed the marine ecosystem was slowly depleting because of relentless human activities.

Representing Deezone Tyres, the Year 13 student of Holy Family Secondary School in Labasa said in order for people to have a brighter and prosperous future, everyone should play a part in protecting our environment, whether it was the sea, land or the natural resources.

Addressing the crowd, Vodafone Fiji mCommerce and corporate affairs head Shailendra Prasad said he was impressed with the informative presentations by the 19 contestants.

"I am really impressed with the messages delivered by the contestants and it is indeed true that we all should work together to save our environment in whatever way we can," he said.
