Saint Lu­cian Broad­caster Ar­turo Valentino con­tin­ues to be rec­og­nized for his con­tri­bu­tion to en­ter­tain­ment in Bar­ba­dos.

The Richard Stoute Teen Tal­ent Contest has pre­sented Valentino with an award for his con­tri­bu­tion to the an­nual show over the past few years.

He was pre­sented with the Fran­cis Sis­nett Trophy at the prize-giv­ing cer­e­mony held this past week­end at the Cle­ment Payne Cen­tre.

The Richard Stoute Teen Tal­ent Contest, now in its 38th year, is the kinder­garten for many of Bar­ba­dos’s en­ter­tain­ers in­clud­ing Ed­win Yearwood, Adrian Clarke and Ru­pee.

Valentino, who is at­tached to CBC Ra­dio 94.7 FM in Bridgetown, says he’s quite sur­prised, yet hum­bled, by the award.

Valentino, a for­mer Caribbean Cor­re­spon­dent with the Mi­ami Her­ald, has also been rec­og­nized in the past in Bar­ba­dos by Richard Stoute with the Jackie Opel Award for his con­tri­bu­tion to Spouge Mu­sic.

The an­nual Bar­ba­dos Mu­sic Awards has also pre­sented Valentino with the Cor­ner­stone Award for his con­tri­bu­tion in pro­mot­ing Bar­ba­dian mu­sic and cul­ture.

Valentino takes pride in be­ing a for­mer mem­ber of the St. Lu­cia Red Cross, the Toast­mas­ter Club and The Op­ti­mist Club of Castries.
