After months of preparation, dedication and practice, the day finally came for the nine lovely contestants of Miss San Pedro High School to take the stage and compete for the crown.
On Saturday, April 2, 2011, San Pedro High School held its very popular Miss San Pedro High Pageant 2011 at the Rafael Angel Nuñez Auditorium. The pageant consisted of nine lovely contestants: Lina Masariegos (1C), Alexis DelValle (2A), Josie Lopez (2G), Miriam Rodriguez (2E), Vivienne Forman (1G), Mahe Pereira (1E), Giselle Alamilla (1A), Marissa Gomez (1H) and Nayelie Puc (2C).
The lovely night kicked off just right with an excellent dance selection by the contestants showing off their dance moves to their audience. The hosts of the night, Mr. Alex Nuñez and Raquel Badillo introduced the many talented students that San Pedro High School has to offer to entertain the audience. Also, a great Fashion Show was done by Belize Top Model Somalia Vernon featuring San Pedro High School students strutting their stuff.
The contestants had many amazing and challenging segments during the night such as the Cocktail Dress, Beach Wear, Cultural, Talent, Evening Wear and Q & A segment. The cocktail dress segment displayed the contestants in beautiful short dresses. As for the beach wear the girls got the chance to express their personalities a bit more to the audience and judges. The cultural segment was a very amusing display of the girls paying tribute to all the marvelous cultures that make up Belize. The talent segment showcased the contestants showing off their hobbies by dancing, singing, acting and performing. The evening wear competition was the most gorgeous segment where the girls wowed the judges and the audience.
