Tobagonians who celebrated for the Miss Universe/Trinidad and Tobago beauty pageant last weekend will know by the end of next week if they have been selected for the next leg of the pageant.
Stephen Jones, managing director of Crowns & Sashes, said the results of the tests are usually announced a week after the judging process.
He added that the party has not yet decided how the results will be released.
“The details of that in terms of how we do it, whether it’s through a press conference, a launch event, a social media post, I can’t say that yet because the team has to decide that,” Jones told Newsday.
The Trinidad Tests are scheduled to take place on Sunday at Naparima Bowl, San Fernando from 10am-6pm.
Twelve young women from the island auditioned for the competition on Saturday at the Shaw Park Cultural Centre.
But Jones said his team also interviewed several young women on the beach on Sunday.
He said the women had heard about the workshop but could not attend because they were at work or other work.
Jones said the committee also received phone calls from three women who expressed interest in attending the Trinidad meetings.
“So we expect a big change. We have about 30-something girls who have registered online for the Trinidad exams and it’s open. “
Reflecting on Saturday’s trials, Jones said, “The quality of the young women, the level is very high. So we are very committed to traveling with the community in Tobago for some time so that we can develop more programs even outside the pageant season.
He suggested life skills workshops and other initiatives aimed at “going into communities and seeing what gaps we can help fill.
“But all the women we spoke with had something very positive to offer and to contribute, and we were very excited about that.”
However, Jones said that competitions like Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago can be tough.
Women who are trying to choose must be between the ages of 18-28, according to the guidelines of the Miss Universe organization. They must also be single, without children and exude courage.
The Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago pageant is taking place after a five-year hiatus, but a date for the pageant has yet to be set.
The winner of the pageant will represent this country at the Miss Universe pageant later this year.
