Guyana Premier, the national franchise of the Miss Earth Guyana national competition, is seeking contestants for this year’s beauty pageant.
The pageant represents the most beautiful women of the Earth to serve as role models dedicated to upholding the advocacy to preserve and restore mother Earth.
Miss Earth is the largest environmental event in the world, channelling the beauty pageant entertainment industry as an effective tool to promote environmental awareness.
Guyana returned to the international pageant in 2018 with Xamiera Kippins. She was crowned Miss Earth Guyana 2018 following a local pageant where she outshone her other competitors.
Miss Earth Guyana 2018 saw great success in gaining our country much needed recognition after she copped the gold medal for her costume depicting Guyanese folklore, the Ole Higue and the silver medal for her talent.
