Support the 2017 Miss Universe Guyana National Pageant!

The 2017 Miss Universe Guyana National Pageant will be held in NYC! This is the first time this national pageant is being held outside of the country of Guyana and held in one of the most popular diaspora cities in the world, Queens, NY! This year’s pageant aims to showcase the confidently beautiful women of Guyana and of the diaspora as they compete to win the coveted title, Miss Universe Guyana.


The 2017 Miss Universe Guyana National Pageant is the 2nd Annual Production under our new organization! Last year, we were granted the opportunity to produce our country’s national pageant as the official licensee of the Miss Universe pageant! As we continue on this mission, we are seeking the support of businesses and individuals who can help us to achieve our goals. 2017 is the only year that the pageant will be held outside of Guyana!

The Miss Universe Guyana national pageant strives to provide opportunities to the young women of Guyana and in the diaspora, so that they may be able to reach their goals and achieve their dreams while promoting charity and tourism. The Miss Universe Organization, our parent organization, headed by WME|IMG Management, has been actively working to change the face of pageantry and to highlight the achievements of women as we still fight for equality worldwide. 

Our program is an empowerment program. We help to provide the tools such as confidence courses, and training in areas such as public speaking, proper nutrition and fitness, presentation etc, which our participants may use in their personal and professional lives beyond the pageant. We promote growth both physically and mentally.

Without the support of generous businesses and individuals, we are unable to fully carry out this program and make the intended impact we work hard towards. The training our participants receive allow them to become better brand ambassadors as they are taught more about marketing and branding, making them perfect influencers for brands, as well as, for tourism of Guyana. 

This year, ALL of our contestants will receive a $23,000 USD renewable 4-year scholarship to the Hollins University, an all-women’s university in Virginia, USA. This scholarship is part of a new partnership with Hollins University to be able to provide our contestants with the opportunity to pursue a higher education in the field they choose! The winner also receives a full scholarship to the New York Performing Arts Academy! We are definitely making strides towards our mission of being able to empower and provide the right tools for success.



We would be honored to have your support! $1 is a great start! We offer many incentives to all of our supporters!

Pledges will go towards scholarships for our contestants, production costs, programs geared towards women empowerment and ensuring that our beautiful Guyanese representative, when chosen, is fully prepared to conquer at the Miss Universe competition! We thank you in advance!
