Sigatoka girl, Phillipa Steele, was crowned the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries Police Divisional Crime Prevention carnival queen last night ahead of six other contestants.
The youngest of the seven contestants was speechless after she was announced the winner.
The 16-year-old student of Sigatoka Methodist High School thanked her sponsors Sigatoka Electric Limited and all members of the Crime Prevention Community for making the event a successful.
Misss Steele represented the Sigatoka Police station.
“I was not expecting to win and I am so happy to have won this crown. This was a great opportunity for me and I am so thankful that the carnival has given a chance to speak on issues that I feel needs to be addressed,” Ms Steele said.
Miss Steele spent the week advocating on sexual abuse against women and child, a topic she felt needed to be addressed immediately.
Even the adverse weather condition failed to stop members of the community turn up in numbers to be part of the crowning night.
