THE title of Miss Liverpool City Region, formerly Miss
Liverpool, is an official qualifying heat for the:- 'Miss England National
Final.' This is more than a traditional catwalk style contest, now
focusing on charity, knowledge, talent and more. The idea is to find a positive
role model to inspire others. The winner of the Miss England title will become
our contender for the Miss World title.
Just as with many things in life, the competition has changed over the years. It
is far more than a Beauty Pageant today!
This year the focus on women and women's rights is even greater than previously,
not just for her, but all over the world. We think this should be embraced. The
Miss England role celebrates these and many other achievements.
All contestants are now expected to not only look good on the traditional
catwalk, but away from it; they must be a positive role model who inspires.
Judges look for a wide range of things, from contestants charity backgrounds to
what they have done, for example at work, within their community and more
Some contestants are far from what you think... Take Miss England 2009, Lance
Corporal Katrina Hodge, was nicknamed:- 'Combat Barbie.' She was
an active member of the British Army. The 22 year old squaddie, before entering,
had received a bravery award in 2005 and is still active. This amazing girl from
Tunbridge Wells told the press that:- "I wanted to show off my Army
skills. I think I'm showing that women in the Army can be pretty and girly, but
also that girls who enter beauty pageants don't have to be bimbos. In reality,
some of the other Miss England girls are training to be lawyers and barristers.
"Beauty with a Purpose," is the slogan the Miss England Contest works with that
Years before she entered Miss England, Doctor Carina Tyrell from Cambridge, who
won in 2014, was raising funds for local charities.. Interestingly, Doctor
Tyrell only finished her University exams the week before competing in Miss
World 2014. She said:- "You're never going to get away from the fact that
people are attracted to beautiful things. Let's use beauty and do something with
it. A Miss England must be a beautiful ambassador for the country, it's not all
about just having a pretty face. To be beautiful, you must also be beautiful on
the inside and have a caring heart."
Not only that, in 2015, Kirsty Heslewood, Miss England 2013, was awarded Freeman
of the City of London for her incredible charity efforts.
Then we have Miss England 2017, the 1st English delegate to make the top 3, in
Miss World, being placed as the 2nd runner up. Following the result in Sanya,
China, Stephanie Hill gained the title of Miss World Europe, after winning the
European contestant with the highest scores. Stephanie has recently graduated
with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Oncology and Radiography. She is also a very
impressive horse rider, winning many events and gaining a placed at Horse of the
Year Show (HOYS).
You don't need to have such an impressive Colloquium Vitae, but do not be put
off, these are just a few examples from the girls who have become Miss England,
. We highlighted these though to show that it really is:- "more than just
a Beauty Pageant!"
Don't worry, you do not need to be 'Combat Barbie' but you do need
to think about how you can become a role model and should you win, commit to
attending some events.
