Thirteen young ladies will take to the stage in the next four days, and when the final curtain has been lifted, one of them will walk away with the Little Miss Bahamas title, a prize package totaling $4,000 and the opportunity to represent The Bahamas at the Little Ladies Worlds Little Miss Pageant in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Her prizes will include an iPad, a 19-inch television, scholarship for one year of foreign language study, scholarship for one year of modeling and etiquette training, photo portrait, jewelry, piece of luggage, a pizza party and a weekend stay at the Abaco All-Inclusive Luxury Bahama Beach Resorts.
Contestants compete in four age categories — ages 5-7, Little Miss La Petite; 7-9, Our Little Miss, 10-12 Little Miss PreTeen and 12-14, Little Ideal Miss — during the 10th annual pageant which will be held on Monday, May 20 at the Rainforest Theatre. Showtime is at 4 p.m.
Competing for titles will be Ebonique Foster, 7; Petra Kemp, 9; Angel Cleare, 11; Dashna Christian, 12; Hadassah Lockhart, 11; Martinique Storr, 12; Tatianna Tucker, 8; Tierra Turnquest, 6; Whitney Johnson, 5; Destiny Johnson, 11; Julisa Johnson, 9; Tierra Thompson, 7; Deija Albury 9; Olivia Cambridge, 5, and Malani Oliver, 10.
While only one young lady will walk away with the official title, a winner will be selected from each of the four age groups to compete at the Little Ladies Worlds Little Miss Pageant as well. They will receive a $1,200 prize package.
