The delegates have already competed in the Fantasy Swimwear segment at the Jam Zone Beach Jam, and the personal interviews were done live on NCN and Channel 72/21 on Monday evening.
The semi-finalists on Monday paid a courtesy call on Tourism, Industry and Commerce Minister, Oneidge Walrond. After being introduced to the delegates, Minister Walrond declared herself pleased to see such beautiful, intelligent women in the pageant, and urged the young ladies to express themselves during the process.
The delegates – Amel Griffith, Omaiah Hall, Jasmine Assanah, Shaniya DeCosta, Jade Mercurius, Phelicia Adams, and Jada Jones – took the opportunity to express their hopes for the development of the Tourism industry.
The Miss Jam Zone Pageant has always been tourism-focused, and this year, the coordinators chose seven towns for the delegates to represent and depict in their National Costume. Each delegate worked closely with several renowned Guyanese designers to create the most stunning and thought-provoking pieces for the upcoming pageant.
The pageant has long been a part of the annual Jam Zone celebrations, and after a brief hiatus, it returned this year to enormous support from the public. Tickets for the pageant are on sale at the National Cultural Centre at a cost of $2000, $2500 and $3000.
