SCDF and Motorworld team up to offer cars for Senior, Mature Carnival queens

The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) and Motorworld took their annual partnership to another level on Thursday with the announcement that the winner of the 2013 Carnival Senior and Mature Pageants will win a vehicle from Motorworld.


President of the SCDF Mike Granger said the SCDF is "extremely happy" to be able to offer such terrific grand prizes to the eventual queens of the two pageants, stressing that the cars should not only attract a large amount of registrants, but will also enhance the level of two shows that are already impressive.

He said the relationship between the SCDF and Motorworld has always been very open, professional and accommodating and "working from that premise made this new venture easily attainable." Present at the presentation on Thursday from Motorworld were Rena Amjad – CEO, Tariq Amjad – Managing Director and Manisha Sukhram – Sales Manager. Vice President of the SCDF Edwardo Radjouki and board member of the SCDF Roland Rommy were also on hand.

Some aspects of the partnership include but are not limited to: The two shows will be branded the Motorworld Senior and Mature Carnival Queen Pageants, the cars will be on display in Carnival Village, Motorworld will have a presence in the Grand Carnival parade, Motorworld will also provide vehicles for the annual motorcade around the island for all Carnival pageant contestants.

"Motorworld is an excellent, dedicated corporate sponsor that the SCDF values. We are in the process of enhancing several areas of Carnival and our two biggest pageants will only benefit in attendance and quality with this latest development in our partnership with Motorworld. We are grateful to the entire Motorworld family for jumping on board with Carnival again this year and even more so this time around," Granger said.

"Motorworld is proud to sponsor the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) for the upcoming Carnival season. Motorworld has been dedicated sponsors throughout the past years with the Carnival Foundation and we will continue for many more years to come. For Carnival 2013 Motorworld will be donating a brand new 2013 Hyundai i10 and brand new 2013 Hyundai i20 for the winner of the Senior Carnival Queen Pageant (18-25) and the winner of the Miss Mature Carnival Queen Pageant (aged 26 and up). We wish all the contestants the very best of luck and hope the people of St. Maarten comes out to support this great event in large numbers," Sukhram said.
