Search on for the next Miss Cayman

| 12/07/2010

(CNS): Having missed the competition in 2009 as a result of financial problems the committee has announced the return of Miss Cayman for 2010/11. Members said the pageant is back on track and will take place on Saturday, 25 September at the Lion’s Centre when the new ‘face’ of the Cayman Islands will be selected to represent the country at Miss World, Miss universe and as a tourist ambassador for the destination. The competition is open to women between18-25 and those interested in entering are invited to attend the preliminary Meet & Greet session scheduled for 14 July at Abacus restaurant in Camana Bay, starting at 6 pm.

 
“Earning the title of Miss Cayman Islands is a major accomplishment for any young woman fortunate enough to win it” said Lynn Bodden-Smatt, the recently elected Committee Chair. “That individual gains a fully paid educational sponsorship, a car and many other wonderful prizes in addition to having one of the most memorable experiences of her lifetime. Our competition is centeredon a “Beauty with a Purpose” theme so contestants select a charity as their platform and work with that organization to foster public awareness and generate private sector support for its cause.”
 
High school graduates between the ages of 18 and 25 who are single, of good character and possess charm, poise, personality, and have beauty of face and figure are encouraged to enter. Full details of the selection criteria are included on application forms which can be downloaded from www.misscaymanislands.ky or accessed through the Ministry of Tourism.
 
Other planned events on the action packed calendar include the Platform Launch on August 21 and the black-tie fund-raiser, known as the Minister’s Ball on 18 September.
 
The Ministry of Tourism holds the franchise for both the Miss World and Miss Universe competitions so the winner represents The Cayman Islands at both; the 2010 Miss World event on 23 October and next year’s Miss Universe.
