“The candidates have been busy preparing for the pageant over the past few months. In addition to rehearsing for the pageant, the girls attended intensive workshops in public speaking, interview skills, poise and catwalk techniques”, says Agnes Higley, pageant director. “With the relentless support and talent of our choreographer, Dana Rossi Palmer and organization president, Eunice Jones, the pageant will showcase participating cultures in style”, adds Higley.
The pageant will consist of three categories: talent, evening gown and interview. One of the highlights of the show will be the parade of candidates in their cultural attires, followed by a dance number. Outgoing Ms. Asia Utah, Nilufar Sherzod and outgoing Ms. United Nations, Maria Jose Turitich Asuncion, along with other professional performers will join the center stage to grace the show. A scholarship grant will be awarded to the crowned Ms. Asia Utah and Ms. United Nations USA 2012. Czarina Trinidad will host this year’s beauty pageant.
