Megan Scott was crowned Winter Carnival Queen on Friday night, just before a huge storm hit Port aux Basques.

Her speech on feminism and equality took weeks of research, but the effort was worth it. She feels she benefited a lot from the experience.

“I wanted to work on my public speaking,” says the 11th grader, who enjoyed making new friends along the way.

Pageant co-ordinator Wanda Lawrence says the competition is less of a beauty pageant and more of a way for the young women to get involved in helping around the community.
