Press Release - Pageants Belize - March 14th, 2000 - Pageants Belize announces the 34th Annual Miss Belize Pageant to take place at the Belmopan Civic Center on March 31st starting at 8:00 p.m.

    After reviewing dozens of applications, the pageant's committee has selected six beautiful and intelligent young ladies between the ages of 18 and 24, to vie for the coveted title. Vanessa Peters, Shari Williams, Elizabeth Rosado, all of Belize City, Patricia Vasquez of Stann Creek, Patricia Usher of Belmopan and Shamika Richardson of New York, will take center stage in the Capital City and will be competing for prizes ranging from scholarships and jewelry, to round trip tickets abroad.

    The winner will represent Belize in the Miss Universe Pageant to take place in Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean, on May 14th.
