Who Will Be Miss Ecumenical?

Simultaneous fundraising activities are underway at the Ecumenical High School in Dangriga. Today, a team traveled from the south to Belize City to spread the word on its mission to raise money to develop on another phase of the institution’s auditorium as well as to embark on community based initiatives across the southern municipality. Some of those activities will be led by the students themselves as their platforms for the upcoming Miss Ecumenical Pageant on March second. Meet the delegates:

Christie Garbutt, Pageant Coordinator, Stann Creek Ecumenical College

“This is going to be our fourth pageant since 2014. This year’s pageant is under the theme “Southern Beauty.” It’s going to be held on March second at the Stann Creek Ecumenical Auditorium. We have five contestants and each of them will be to represent a product from the south.”


Duane Moody

“It’s a fundraiser?”


Christie Garbutt

“Yes, all the proceeds from our pageant is going to be put into school projects; namely, we have the student assistance program as well as a sporting program that we are focusing on.”


Duane Moody

“We know that they always say that pageants like these also build character in these young ladies.”


Christie Garbutt

“Yes, we do believe that our pageants should not be all about just nailing a speech and looking pretty. We believe that they should do something for our community so with that said; we are introducing a new segment of our pageant which is called the community ambassador. Each of our contestants is working on a volunteer project that they are going to be doing in our community. And whether they win or lose, this is something that I believe they are going to continue as a volunteer service.”


The pageant begins at six-thirty; tickets are available for ten dollars.
