We have a queen. The crowd went wild at Lionel Roberts Stadium banging on pots and pans and blasting airhorns as they applauded their favorites for five hours on Saturday night. We have a queen, but first…  her  court includes: 17-year-old Madainia  Tavernier, the second runner up, and 17-year-old Aliyah  Dessout (De–Sew) who was selected first runner up and won Miss Cooperative and Best Talent. 18 year-old Tayhira  Richards from Ivanna Eudora Kean High School won the Miss Congeniality award. Our queen is Deja'Nique Navarro. No stranger to competition, she was Carnival Princess in 2010, and in the same year she was first runner up in the Junior Calypso competition. Navarro won four of the six Queen Show awards; Best Cultural Costume, Best Evening Wear, Most Photogenic and Miss Intellect. And she won the top title of Carnival Queen. She is an 18-year-old senior at Charlotte Amalie High School and plans to study hospitality at Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island in the fall. But where was the crowd? Apparently they had other things as Lionel Roberts Stadium was not packed. On Sunday Carnival continued with best dressed as a doll competition and the traditional games and the toddlers tried to find their way to the other end of the carpet.
