Last year, Vivian Noralez represented Belize at the Miss Earth International Pageant that was held in Panama. She brought home the title of Miss Petite Earth International and will be traveling to Ecuador in August to pass on her title on pageant night that is scheduled for September 3rd, 2017.
In her determination to promote Belize as a popular travel and eco-friendly destination and have a representative in this year’s pageant, Vivian took it upon herself to organize and select candidates to run for the title of Miss Teen Belize. The winner will travel with her to Ecuador to represent Belize.
Seventeen applications were sent in and casting calls are held in San Pedro and Belize City. The top six were chosen not only based on beauty but their knowledge about the environment.
Miss Teen Belize will be held under the theme “Natural Essence of Mother Nature” on May 27, 2017 at Mahogany Bay Village in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The girls will have the opportunity to interact with judges in a personal interview, display their costumes, swimsuits and evening gowns. However, the question and answer segment will be the most important part.
The contestants will travel to San Pedro for the officially sashing ceremony and the following day will be hosting a clean-up campaign along with students from San Pedro High School and Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
On April 1, all six candidates participated in the official photo shoot for Miss Teen Belize. Vivian states that she choose the Belize Zoo as the venue for this shoot because she is keeping with the theme and sticking to environmentally friendly locations promoting the conservation of animals.
Miss Teen Earth strives to promote ecotourism and environmentally beneficial activities that include: reforestation, refuge to exotic plants and animals considered endangered. Miss Teen Earth promotes issues regarding the environment around the world.
