Samoa celebrates South Pacific beauties

Samoa will be celebrating the best of the South Pacific from December 4 until the 10th as it hosts the Pure Pacifika Miss South Pacific Pageant 2011.

Returning back to its home, the pageant was an initiative by the Government of Samoa 25 years ago.

Nine of the region’s most beautiful and talented women will fly to Samoa and compete for this coveted title which celebrates the attributes, intelligence, culture, talents and regional traditions of young Pacific Island women.  The theme for this year’s pageant is ‘Celebration of the South Pacific’.

After a week of rehearsals, parades, cultural demonstrations, public appearances and media interviews, Joyana Meyer of the Cook Islands was crowned Miss South Pacific in Papua New Guinea last year.  Miss Aotearoa New Zealand and Miss Samoa finished 2nd and 3rd. Joyana will be handing her crown to a new winner in December.

All contestants are deep in preparations and have their eye firmly fixed on the prize, determined to be the 25th Miss South Pacific titleholder.
 
The nations of American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Hawaii Islands, Papua New Guinea, Tokelau, Tonga, Solomon Islands and Samoa will be represented.  

The 25th edition of the Miss South Pacific Pageant is presented by Pure Pacifika and the Government of Samoa and will be held in Apia during the week starting December 4 and culminating in the finals show on December 10.
