GREAT BAY – The board of the St. Maarten Carnival Foundation (SCDF) has selected “Let’s delve into we carnival 2012” as the slogan for Carnival 2012. The winning selection, which was submitted by hardware store staffer Delbert Jack, was chosen from over 100 submissions via Face book and email. Jack was presented with a season pass to Carnival 2012.

This year’s submissions exceeded the ones for 2011 and inspired much debate within the foundation’s board. It was eventually chosen to reinforce the commitment and involvement of the people as it shall always be the “people’s festival.”

“We held onto the “we carnival” part of the slogan as it speaks to everyone who loves carnival or is involved in any facet of our cultural celebrations. We embraced the involvement of the people perspective in the winning slogan; people must hold onto the ownership of our carnival as it belongs to them,” President of the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation Stuart Johnson said.

“Everyone can feel proud of the steps taken already towards the preparation of Carnival 2012, inclusive of the full schedule already being released, our ongoing registration, our promoters being identified, and now our slogan being launched. We surely are holding onto the promise made; early preparations for carnival surely will lead to a more successful carnival season, once again. We’ve come a long way and this is simply just the beginning of what is yet to come,” Johnson said.

Monday’s announcement is part of the SCDF’s gearing up to release its plans for the marketing and further promotion of Carnival for the upcoming season and beyond.
