The Miss World Guyana Organisation (MWGO) is throwing out the challenge to each and every one of you to come and try your hand at the Miss World Guyana 2017 crown, which is up for grabs to anyone! That’s right! Anyone!
Majesty International, the official License Holder of the pageant headed by Natasha Martindale, is on the hunt for that well-rounded ambassador with the beauty, grace and all that jazz, and will be conducting a challenging list of tests in talent, sports, modelling and interview segments on Sunday morning at the Cara Lodge on Quamina Street.
So far, 25 semi-finalists have already made the initial cut, and are going to go through that round of tests, as the pageant holder looks to shake things up a little in the vetting process this year.
This round comes after a number of young ladies would have already taken and passed an Online “personality test” from which this ultimate 25 were selected.
There is still time for any other eligible young ladies to throw her hat in the ring though; all one needs do is go Online and take the personality test before Sunday.
A link to the form can be found on the Miss World Guyana’s Facebook page.
Eligibility includes that you between the ages of 16 to 24 on or before May 26.
Come Sunday, these 25 girls and anyone else that qualifies, will be judged in the differing segments based on a three-point system, with one point for a poor performance, three for a satisfactory performance, and five points if they nailed it and did an excellent job.
The judges will be looking at the overall presentation, quality of skill, endurance, determination, external beauty, poise, elegance, fun improvisation, articulation of each entrant.
Applicants are to walk with gym wear, four-inch heels, and be prepared to be grilled. In addition to the aesthetic and intellectual requirement, applicants must demonstrate their willingness to make a difference in the lives of others, and must contribute to the development of Guyana.
From this, the 10 finalists will be decided, and take part in the final pageant. It will all lead up to the selection of the ultimate young lady who will get the chance to follow in the footsteps of the commanding Rafeiya Husain, the dazzling Lisa Punch, and the enchanting Nuriyyih Gerrard, who’s still reigning.
Gerrard represented this country exceptionally well at the Miss World competition last December in Washington DC, USA.
