PHILIPSBURG - St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) presented some winners of this year's Carnival competitions with their Bureau Telecommunication and Post-sponsored prizes on Friday. Prize recipients were Junior Calypso Queen Denicia Martimbor, Junior Calypso competition second place winner Erissa Cozier, Junior Queen Zaysha Sinclair, Junior pageant first runner-up Dashannique Pascal, Senior Queen Trumane Trotman and Senior pageant first runner-up Davinia Brooks.

He, like SCDF President Stuart Johnson, said the donation was setting an example for others in the business community.
Johnson noted SCDF's pleasure in passing on to the winners prizes that were rightfully theirs. He noted that SCDF was in full swing with preparations for next year's Carnival, as he said Carnival planning was a year-round task.
