ntigua Computer Technology (ACT), a corporation in Antigua and Barbuda, has not only in the last 29 years, evolved to become the island’s largest and most reliable technology provider but a beacon for community growth and development.
The company’s mission is to bring the community into the future through technology by continuously striving to make a positive impact by always extending a helping hand.
The Jaycees Queen Show, the longest running pageant in the region once again strives to promote development goals in Millenniums. This year the theme is “Embracing Gender Parity with Elegance and Beauty.” The competition which takes place on the 29th of July at the Antigua Recreation Grounds looks to highlight contestants from across the region while promoting gender equality and empowering women.
The company has partnered with the Jaycees Queen Show for the past ten years, this year they will donate an HP laptop to the winner of this year’s pageant. The computer is in aid of assisting the winner in her efforts to advocate for empowerment and to participate in creating a brighter future for women and the community at large. These projects provide the necessary skills for the youth to build leadership skills and become active citizens in our community.
Senator Shenella Govia – National President of the JCI West Indies and Sub-Chairperson Prizes and Sponsorship, had this to say about this the JCI program.
“As members of JCI Antigua, we align ourselves with the Millennium Development Goals. The annual Jaycees Queen Show, the longest standing pageant across the Caribbean is celebrating 57 years of empowering women through pageantry.“
She went on to add the importance of corporate sponsors and partners like ACT.
“JCI Antigua provides development opportunities that empowers young people to create positive change in Antigua and Barbuda and by extension, West Indies and the world. I believe that ACT cares about youth development and as such, would align in sharing the same vision as JCI.”
ACT’s Business Development Manager Andrew Doumith is pleased again to be a corporate sponsor of the competition.
“Our mission at ACT is to bring our community into the future, and to support programs such as the Jaycees Queen Show is just another way. Events such as these, are sentimental to us since they highlight what matters to us most – the community.”
