The fifth annual Miss Show-Off Pageant will take place this year on Sunday 27th September under the theme, “Once Upon A Time”. It is also the first in the show’s brief history which will be staged virtually. The organisers say due to COVID-19 regulations, the show will
be streamed live on Facebook on the Ms. Show-Off page. Viewers will be able to enjoy the
show from the comfort and safety of their homes.
This year, six beautiful and talented young women will vie for the coveted crown. Over several months, the contestants have been locked in rehearsals preparing for the show, under the guidance of renowned designer, Shirrine Gillon of the Dream Catchers Modelling Inc. Ahead of the competition, Gillon said she has a new appreciation for the word perseverance.
“There have been a lot of challenges. We have had to work around the curfew and the other protocols, but even with the challenges, the ladies are talented. I really love doing this and at the end of the day I will put my best foot forward to give the audience the best show possible,” Gillon promised.
The contestants are Ashella Pluck, Cariesa Corbet, Auriae Aaron, Myrrisha Richards, Latasha Williams and Milove Fontaine. The reigning queen is Kessy-Ann Samuel. The Ms. Show-Off Pageant provides a platform for young women to develop their pageantry and scholastic potential. The winner will receive a two year scholarship to a local tertiary institution with additional support to pursue two years of college or university.
The organizers of this not-for-profit event are inviting corporate sponsors to support the initiative by reserving advertising slots which will be run during the live show. Founder and benefactor of the show, Colin James, said this year’s event being able to occur is the result of the hard work and dedication of everyone involved. The contestants will perform at the
Dean William Lake Cultural Centre.
