In a matter of days, a new Miss Earth Guyana will be crowned and move on to represent Guyana on the international stage. Vying for the title are eight beauties who have undergone extensive training leading up to the Pageant.
These are Phelicia Adams, Marcia Meusa, Kataina Phillips, Selena Guyadeen, Annessa VanSluytman, Cintiana Harry, Amelia Baksh, and Faydeha King.
The delegates have competed in several preliminary competitions such as the talent, recycled fashion wear, Beauty with a Cause and intelligence contests. The winners of the respective preliminaries will be announced on the night of the grand coronation.
However, on the evening of Saturday, June 15 at the National Cultural Centre, the eight delegates will compete in the national costume, resort wear, evening wear, and question-and-answer segments. It is expected that only four delegates will move into the question-and-answer segment to answer the final question.
On the night of the event, patrons are expected to be blown away not only by the delegates but the cultural showcase. There will be singing, dancing, tassa drumming and other activities. Tickets for the grand coronation cost $3000 (auditorium front) and $2000 (auditorium rear) and can be uplifted at the National Cultural Centre, from the delegates or any of the organisers.
