Miss Jamaica Florida Competition extends deadline to August 31
The Miss Jamaica Florida Pageant is seeking well-rounded, confident, intelligent young ladies to compete for the title of Miss Jamaica Florida 2016. In order to allow for greater participation, the organizers have extended the application deadline to August 31.
The winner of the competition will receive a week-long all expenses paid trip to Jamaica, a modeling contract, and savings bonds among other gifts; and will participate in media events, humanitarian projects, and official appearances during the year-long reign. The mission of the pageant is titled “Crowned with a Purpose” which serves as a reminder that as members of the Jamaican Diaspora, we must ‘stay committed to the fulfillment of our philanthropic duties and remain steadfast in our quest for knowledge…’
To compete in the competition, contestants must be Jamaican-born or of Jamaican descent; must be between the ages of 5 and 24, reside in Miami-Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach County; and must be unmarried and must never have been married. This year will mark the 27th year of ‘elegance and sophistication’ celebrated by the Miss Jamaica Florida Pageant. The show, scheduled to take place on October 23rd, will be judged on four categories: a preliminary private interview, creative expression, formal wear, and the on-stage question.
