The Miss Grand Bahama Beauty Pageant Organization will present to you eight magical mystical, beautiful and intelligent young women to Grand Bahama and The Bahamas
Early this year the Miss Grand Bahama held a screening process to find ideal contestants with intelligence, effective communication skills, appearance, attitude, motivation, team spirit, maturity and confidence.
As a part of being accepted as a contestant for the 2010/2011 Miss Grand Bahama Beauty Pageant, the young ladies had to go through training and work shops in etiquette , make-up , health and fitness , public speaking , presentation and runway technique.
Who will be the next Miss Grand Bahama who will fit the shoes of our reigning queen Ms Nikie Severe? Ms Severe has represented our island and The Bahamas with grace, style, poise, beauty and maturity. At the Miss Friendship International Pageant in China Ms Severe placed in the top 15 - a joyous moment. She also participated in the Miss Coffee International Beauty Pageant.
"It has been a busy year for our Miss Grand Bahama and she attended many functions, but this is what our pageant is all about; getting Miss Grand Bahama out in the community, and letting the public know who Miss Grand Bahama is, " said Glenn Davis, Founder of the Miss Grand Bahama Beauty Pageant Organization. "There are a lot of pageants in our community not giving the winners the exposure that they should be getting, .Our queens should be more involved in community service. That is one of our main objectives with the Miss Grand Bahama Pageant," he concluded.
Our winner will receive a two year scholarship to Terreve College and a month-long, all expense paid trip to China, where she will represent Grand Bahama/ The Bahama in the Miss Friendship International Pageant. Also an all expense paid trip to Colombia to participate in the Miss Coffee International Beauty Pageant.
