Caribbean Youth Fest Celebrates Eleven Years in 2014!
Vieux Fort will be buzzing with activity on December 21st, 2014 when the youth of St. Lucia and St. Vincent & the Grenadines take the stage in competition.
Caribbean Youth Fest is an annual event that provides a forum to showcase, promote, and develop the musical and related talents of our youth, while utilizing the talent and influences to spread positive values and healthy lifestyles. The vision includes influencing values and behavior and bonding with the various stakeholders through the music and lyrics of peers. The organization also directs focus and efforts to the virtue of “Charity”. Over the past several years Caribbean Youth Fest has donated EC$66,345 to community organizations committed to assisting those in need.
Caribbean Youth Fest collaborates with Corporate Caribbean via sponsorship in preserving, promoting and developing our Caribbean culture and values through the music of our youth, as part of corporate social responsibility.
The tenth anniversary of Caribbean Youth Fest in 2013 saw the inclusion of St. Vincent & the Grenadines in the competition and it will be repeated this year as singers and dancers and supporters will arrive on a boat excursion on December 21st. Six Vincentian singers will compete in the teens and twenties categories along with one dance group.
This year’s Caribbean Youth Fest will see the overall winner of the singing competition, YOUTH STAR 2014, walk away with $5,000 in cash plus attractive prizes. There will be thousands of dollars awarded to winners in first and second places in the various categories. Apart from the competition, Caribbean Youth Fest will host three modeling agencies showcasing their creativity in design and modeling skills. Various Caribbean artistes will entertain the audience with pulsating rhythms all day long as families partake of this very spirited event on the eve of the Christmas festivities.
