Kenaz ‘Bit Bit’ Walker and Jade Leilani Roach will be the first to hit the stage in the semi-finals of the National Cultural Foundation’s 2024 Scotiabank Junior Monarch competition.

They were among 26 contestants who eagerly drew their positions to perform in the competition’s calypso and soca categories at today’s media launch.

The semi-finalists will face the judges on Sunday, July 7 at the National Botanical Gardens. The show starts at 6:00 p.m.

There, the finalists will be chosen and who will take the crowns will be decided two weeks later at the same venue on Saturday, July 20.

Managing Director of Scotiabank Barbados Suzette Armoogam-Shah, says the bank is pleased to continue its sponsorship of the competition, which helps young people to reach their full potential and to unlock sustained success.

During the event Scotiabank presented a cheque for $80,000 to the NCF.
