Beauty club seeks hibiscus queen

If you are a single Caymanian woman
between the ages of 18 and 26, possess a valid Cayman Islands passport with
United States visa or a British passport, you are eligible to become a
contestant in Cayman Beauty Club’s quest for this year’s Hibiscus Queen.

The winner will go on to represent
Cayman in the Miss Caribbean Hibiscus Beauty Pageant at Sonesta Maho Beach
Resort on St. Martin, 22 November to 4 December.

The local contest, geared at
promoting island culture, will take place sometime in September if enough women
sign up to enter. If not, Cayman Beauty Club franchise holder Dwight McLean
said, “a selection will be made through an interview-only process. Young ladies
selected will go through an extensive preparation process to ensure that Cayman
is well-represented.”

By participating in the event
overseas, he said, Cayman women could benefit from the exposure, meet people
who offer new opportunities, and get to know more about the Caribbean, as well
as promote the Cayman Islands.

“The pageant is all about promoting
your island, the Caribbean as a destination, and most of all, developing
friendships. I feel this is a great opportunity for a Caymanian beauty queen to
become an ambassador for the Caribbean and most of all it will increase their
network database and can be used as a vehicle to the national pageant,” said
Mr. McLean.

In St. Martin, some 20 candidates
from South and Central America and the Caribbean will compete for the title of
Miss Caribbean Hibiscus Beauty.

Contestants will make presentations
in several sections including: cultural, swimwear, evening wear and speech.
Participants will also be involved in various activities, such as island-
hopping, sponsors’ receptions, touring and meeting officials. Awards will be
presented for best cultural wear, best gown, Miss Amity, Miss Popularity and
Miss Photogenic.

The winner will receive the Miss
Caribbean Hibiscus Beauty 2010 title along with a cash prize,
