In the Miss category, 16 contestants between the ages of 19-28 will vie for the title. There’s also a teen division for girls 13-18.

Things kick-off with a reception and press conference May 27 at 4 p.m. Then there’s the pageant stuff where the contestants will be evaluated, says the press release, on their “confidence, inner beauty, intelligence and leadership”, with the winners being crowned at a May 29 gala.

“The delegates who become part of the Miss Saskatchewan Pageant gain confidence and poise in an increasingly competitive world,” continues the press release (which boasts a 403 area code contact number). “The pageant affords each delegate the opportunity to grow and advance her personal and career goals while acting as a role model in Saskatchewan and around the world.”
