Time to find the beauty of Cumbria for Miss England contest

The hunt is on to find Cumbria’s most glamorous ladies to represent Cumbria in the Miss England competition.

Miss Cumbria will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of the current Miss England, Lance Corporal Katrina Hodge.

Katrina, a serving soldier decorated for bravery in Iraq, scooped the crown last year and represented England in the Miss World contest in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Event organiser Mark Jones said: “Last year we had a great response from Cumbria and it was extremely tough to select the winner.

“Eleanor Barr, 20, of Barrow, wowed the judges with her looks, personality and charm and walked her way into the Miss England finals.

“We’re hoping to find another stunner this year to prove once again to the rest of the UK that some of the most beautiful and intelligent girls in the country come from the Cumbria area.”

Much more than a traditional beauty pageant or modelling competition, the organisers of Miss Cumbria are looking for an ambassador for the area.

Someone well presented, confident and able to communicate are just some of the qualities that the judges will be looking for.

The winner of Miss Cumbria 2010 will, among other prizes, win a place in the Miss England semi-final where she will have a chance to go on to the Miss World 2010 competition in Vietnam, where the main prize is $100,000.

The winner will be actively encouraged to use their title to promote the area and raise the profile of many worthy causes throughout the year.

This year the Miss Cumbria organisers aim to raise money for the Variety Club Children’s Charity through contestant fundraising and activities.

Contestants for Miss Cumbria have until Friday, March 12 to enter via the website www.miss-cumbria.co.uk

They must be aged between 17 and 24, and must never have been married or have children.
