The Miss Cheshire 2019 Final will take place on Sunday 26 May at the Northwich Memorial Court Theatre to crown the winner of the competition.
Young women aged 17-26 were invited to enter the contest which will provide entrants with the opportunity to raise money for charity, make lifelong friends and be a role model for others.
Finalists can also be introduced to the modelling world, safely, if they wish to do so. The Miss Cheshire organisation are able to offer advice and support to women that want to pursue a modelling career and set them up with a reputable agency.
As well as Miss Cheshire and Junior Miss Cheshire 2019, there are other awards to be won such as Miss Charity Cheshire, Miss Popularity Cheshire and Cheshire’s Top Model. The winner of Miss Popularity Cheshire must gain the public vote to go on to compete in the Miss England Popularity Semi Final and get the chance to compete in the Miss England Finals which take place in July.
Cheshire’s Top Model is a new award made for the person with the most potential for modelling. This award is in association with Fascia Models International and Third Avenue Photography to provide the winner with the guidance and contacts to succeed.
Rachael Woollam, 19, is a Miss Cheshire finalist and has been raising money for Variety, a children’s charity to help improve the lives of disadvantaged or disabled children.
She said: “To raise money I have climbed Snowdon, done a raffle, sold sweets, done a car boot sale and sang in front of an audience.”
The final will entail an activity day with a four-scene catwalk fashion show with a charity scene; and eco scene in which contestants craft their own costume; a black and sparkles scene; and an evening scene.
Rachael has said that she has entered the competition to improve her self-confidence and to embrace the empowerment of other women.
She said: “I want to become a role model for younger children and help improve the community. To win Miss Cheshire, I need to have done a lot of charity work, community work, get lots of votes and have lots of publicity!”
Rachael is currently coming in at 6th place out of 31 contestants.
The Miss Cheshire group have said that one of the main reasons young women take part in the competition is to gain confidence and to become the best version of themselves. Everyone is welcome to enter, you don’t need experience to become Miss Cheshire 2019.
Taking part in the contest can result in great opportunities like appearing on television as presenters or actresses and becoming brand ambassadors for a variety of products. Natasha Hemmings won the title in 2015 and went on to win Miss England and will be competing in the Miss World finals in Thailand later this year.
The organisation has also said that universities, employers and airlines have taken interest in those that take part.
