Unique pageant celebrates diversity and culture

Good Morning Utah

A unique pageant right here in Utah, called Miss Nations of the World, is celebrating diversity. Contestants Ludovica, Tianna, Allison, Nyokabi, Lauren, and Alisah joined Good Morning Utah to talk about the event. 

Cultural pageants are not the typical pageant where there are height, weight and size requirements. With Miss Nations of the World, contestants can be tall, short, heavy, slim, beautiful or not, as long as you have a culture to showcase.  Single  women between the ages of 18 thru 30 with at least 25 percent link ancestries  to the country they are representing can compete. 18 countries and delegates from different states in the US like New York, California, Washington state are being represented this year. 

The event is happening on on August 12th at Granger High Auditorium at 6:30pm.
