The selection process was very insightful and it involved an application of 19 participants of the Delta Cultura Educational Centre. After analysing these applications according to the criteria the Organising Committee defined, 9 potential candidates were selected.
After an interview with these nine applicants the actual six (3 girls and 3 boys) who will go to the Festival were selected.
Below are the names of the 6 selected candidates:
- Aleida Lopes Borges “Suila”
- Geisa Augusta Furtado da Silva “Geisa”
- Ruana Benilde Lopes Fernandes “Ruana”
- Elton Djony Tavares Sanches “Elton”

Important to mention that these 6 selected candidates are those that showed more knowledge about Delta Cultura, Tarrafal and Cape Verde.
Three people from Delta Cultura Cabo Verde will accompany these 6 youths.
The elements are:
