Amalgamated Bank (ECAB) as both corporate citizens pledged their continued support for the upcoming Junior Calypso and Junior Party Monarch Competitions. State Insurance Corporation has been on board as the title sponsor for at least eleven (11) years, and is recommitted this year to empower the Junior Calypsonians in both age categories.

Meanwhile, ECAB has been the key sponsor of the Junior Party Monarch Competition, since its inception three years ago. Chairman of the Junior Calypso subcommittee, Rudolph Davis is overjoyed that both entities continue to support the development of these junior artistes as they embark on their journey to preserve the music and cultural art-form in Antigua & Barbuda.

Acting Permanent Secretary within the Ministry of Sport, Culture, and National Festivals, Clarence Pilgrim, delivered remarks expressing gratitude to both partners, and encouraged this year’s participants to put their best foot forward in this year’s competition. The Junior Calypso and Junior Party Monarch Competitions will be staged on Thursday 3rd August at Carnival City.
