(Eleuthera, Bahamas) – Friday night, July 12th, was pageant night in The Bluff, North Eleuthera, where the annual Homecoming Festival focused on crowning the Miss Teen Bluff 2013. Six teens vied for the coveted crown through four segments featuring, Casual Wear, Professional Wear, Talent and Evening Wear.

The young ladies began with a dance routine prepared especially for the event (photo in the gallery), followed by the Casual Wear segment where they introduced themselves to the surrounding crowd of onlookers, and each contestant described an island in The Bahamas which they represented.  During the Professional Wear round, the ambitious ladies shared their career aspirations, which varied from Police Women, to Prime Minister.

At the end of the night, Ms. Jasmine Kemp was crowned the winner coming out ahead of Tameka Kelly in second and Walisha Morimvil in third.

The night’s entertainment following the pageant was Sonovia Pierre of Visage.
