Cayman pageant is renewed

The
Miss Cayman Committee has announced that the annual pageant is back on track
for 2010 after a year’s break. The deadline to submit applications is 21 July.

This
year’s pageant, with the theme Beauty with a Purpose, will be held Saturday, 25
September at the Lions Centre. Applicants must have completed high school and
be between 18 and 25 years old. Applicants must also be single, of good
character and possess charm, poise and personality.

For
an application form, further information about the pageant’s full selection
criteria and a comprehensive schedule of pre-pageant events, visit
www.misscaymanislands.ky, the Ministry of Tourism or the pageant’s Facebook
page.

The
newly appointed committee chairperson, Lynn Bodden-Smatt, said: “Earning the
title of Miss Cayman Islands is a major accomplishment for any young woman
fortunate enough to win it.

“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.”

She
said that in line with the competition’s theme, contestants will select “a
charity as their platform and work with that organisation to foster public
awareness and generate private sector support for its cause.”

Pre-pageant
events include the Platform Launch on 21 August and the Minister’s Ball, a
black-tie fundraiser, on 18 September.

Since
the Ministry of Tourism holds the franchise for the Miss World and Miss
Universe competitions, the winner of Miss Cayman 2010/11 will represent the
Cayman Islands at the 2010 Miss World pageant on 23 October, in Sanya, China,
and at the Miss Universe competition 2011 in Vietnam.
