Mr. Liburd pointed out that the participants for the Mr. and Miss Talented Youth Pageant will be launched at a later date. “The students are currently engaged in writing their Test of Standards examinations and we believe that the launch will be a distraction and as a result, the (Culturama) committee has decided to launch those participants at a later date,” he said.
