Queen of the Jewel Ltd., The Belize Tourism Board (BTB), The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, & Culture, and The National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) are partnering to present the Miss Belize 2016 Pageant slated as part of this year’s September celebrations. The event takes place on September 10, 2016 at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts. In addition, this year’s winner will be participating at the Miss Universe contest, a first for Belize since 2007!

The call has now been sounded for young Belizean women all over the country to sign up at our website www.missbelizepageant.com to register. Contestants must be between the ages of 18 and 26, a minimum height of 5’5”, of good moral character, possess a minimum of a high school diploma to participate. You could be the next Miss Belize!

“Miss Belize is not just pageant it’s a movement. A movement to recapture, restore and retain the pride and prestige that is befitting to the title of Miss Belize and Miss Belize Universe. We aim to create avenues for positive experiences in order to encourage our young women to strive for excellence by celebrating their confidence, culture and beauty.”

Bring Back The Beauty

The date for the local Miss Belize competition is set for September 8th.

Now Belize has made a mark at the Miss Universe Pageant before. In 1979 Sarita Acosta made it to the semi-finals. So is Belize ready to go "Sarita" in 2016? The new managers of the Miss Belize Franchise seem to think so.
