Miss Lobster Fest Caye Caulker This Weekend!

While San Pedro prepared for its world famous Lobster Fest, our neighboring island of Caye Caulker also prepares for its lobster season festivities. Miss Lobster Fest Pageant is coming on June 25 to La Isla Cariñosa as their Lobster Festival runs from June 25 to 27.

Caye Caulker Lobster Fest Pageant Committee is a non- profit organization that is organized by local youths of the island who are working passionately and voluntarily to keep a scholarship program going. They have already confirmed popular Belize media personalities William Neal (of Channel 5) and Indira Craig (of Channel 7) as hosts of the pageant that will be contested by five beautiful ladies. The contestants include Miss Iriani Pineda, Miss Ricardina Alcala, Miss Stephanie Arce, Miss Norielli Sandoval and Miss Fidellie Jimenez.

The winner of the pageant, Miss Lobster Fest 2010, will receive a $4000.00 scholarship to be used toward her education. In addition, the 1st runner up will also receive $1000.00 scholarship to be used towards her education, be it high school, tertiary, vocational studies, cosmetology or any form of education that would be of benefit towards the development of the individuals.

“This is more than just a pageant,” commented one pageant organizer. “We consider ourselves as a scholarship foundation and it is more of a community effort to impact our young ladies to grow in a positive manner whereby she can be more of a role model to our youths. The island is small and there is only so much that can be done, however instilling good values and skill in young ladies on the island can only lead to a more productive individual.”

For these reasons the pageant committee has agreed not to have a swim suit segment, but instead have a more creative segment call “Depiction of lifestyle on Caye Caulker.” This segment helps promote, culture, art and the awareness on how important sea life is toward the development of the island and eco system.

The reigning Miss Lobster Fest Caye Caulker Queen, Miss Lexee Marin, will be present to crown and sash her successor.
