Region 10 children showcase talents at Mash costume competition

The children of Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Upper Berbice) concluded the third day of the Regional Children’s Mashramani Costume Competition on Friday with a bang.

The competition took place at Lichas Hall, Linden where the audience was entertained by students from across Region 10, who showcased their talents in Calypso and dramatic poetry.

These students hailed from the primary and secondary schools around the region that fell into the following categories: five to seven, eight to 10, 11 to 13 and 14 to 17.
Participants took the stage dressed in colourful costumes and some, covered in bright shades of glitter as they addressed current issues through song and poetry written by their teachers.

The Calypso eight-10 category included performances by Ii Albert of Watooka Day Primary School and Shavare Fraser of Amelia’s Ward Primary School, whose pieces both highlighted Guyana’s wealth.

Through Fraser’s piece, ‘Jump and wave’, he encouraged the citizens of Guyana to celebrate since, “We got the oil so let’s jump and wave.”
This year’s Regional Children’s Costume Competition was held under the theme, “Celebrate Mash 49 with Victory in Mind–Rediscovering Eldorado.”

On Thursday, the amusing Children’s Mashramani Costume Competition took place at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) Ground in Linden, despite of the inclement weather.
The massive crowd witnessed primary and secondary school students from across the region competing in dances such as masquerade, hip-hop, skipping, contemporary and physical display.

The performed pieces also highlighted current affairs such as the discovery of Guyana’s oil, domestic violence, and abuse, among others.
