It is a dream for many little San Pedranas to be told that they are a princess, well sometimes dreams do come true. On Saturday, November 21, 2009 the R. Angel Nuñez Auditorium was filled with laughter and excitement as seven “princesses” took the stage to show off their talent vying to win the title of Lil’ Miss SPHS 2009.
The event started with the introduction of the seven beauties who showed off their dancing skills in a group dance. This started the show off with a bang. The princesses then dazzled the crowd with four other sections of the competition which included a Culture Competition (displaying the different cultures of Belize), Swimsuit Competition (showing off their amazing modeling skills), Talent Competition (with impressive singing & dancing which made it even harder for the judges) and the Evening Wear Competition (displaying their beautiful dresses).
Entertaining the crowd between the competition segments was San Pedro High School’s successful band Rock In Peace. The judges had the hardest task of the night after experiencing the competition that these little girls brought on stage. It is a fact that San Pedro has talent. The contestants were called back on stage as it was time for crowning.
At the end of the competition it was announced that Nayobi Rivero was crowned San Pedro’s first Lil’ Miss SPHS, and the crowd went wild with much excitement. There were two other lucky little girls who got crowned that evening including: Divia Wadhwa 2nd & Miss Photogenic and Lisandra Novelo 3rd. The Night was very entertaining; another great success for San Pedro High School.
