With the whole world in a “green” initiative and every developed nation becoming more environmentally conscious, the Miss Earth annual international pageant was created in 2001 to promote environmental awareness.
Apart from a strong emphasis on environmental protection programs, the Miss Earth pageant also aims to showcase and promote various tourist destinations.
Every year, candidates from all over the world compete on beauty and knowledge of social and environmental issues.
Guam’s very own reigning Miss Earth, Cydney Shey, was presented with a certificate of appreciation for her hard work in promoting Guam abroad.
“I was just so honored by having my people’s support behind me,” Shey said.
The Miss Earth Guam titleholder and delegates actively promote environmental organizations, corporations, and companies in an effort to promote earth friendly products and practices.
