The President of Miss Vanuatu and Miss Port Vila Committees, Mrs Michelle Bourie, has confirmed that the event will take place at the end of the year and the exact date will be announced after everything is finalized.
“We have our major sponsors for this year’s beauty pageant and we have five months to do campaign to promote this event- it is the biggest in Vanuatu, long enough to be beneficiary for our sponsors,” she said.
“We have a committee in place that includes all relevant government representatives especially in the department of Tourism and Vanuatu Tourism Office whom we will work together to organize the Miss Vanuatu event and we have a few months to work hard to make sure this works out.”
Mrs Bourie is encouraging young females around the country who are interested to participate in the competition to give in their names and be available to take part in activities leading up to main part of the beauty pageant that will take place in December.
“Young girls or women between 18 and 25 years of age are encouraged to take part and we do have major sponsors like Digicel so this is going to be one exciting event for everyone to participate to find who is our next Miss Vanuatu 2017,” she said.
