The Miss Jam Zone Pageant has always been tourism focussed and this year the coordinators chose 7 towns for the delegates to represent and depict in their national costume. Each delegate worked closely with several renowned Guyanese designers to create the most stunning and thought-provoking pieces for the upcoming pageant.
The pageant has long been a part of the annual Jam Zone celebrations and returned this year after a brief hiatus to enormous support from the public. The delegates have already competed in the Fantasy Swimwear segment at the Jam Zone beach Jam and the personal interviews were conducted live on NCN and Channel 72/21 on Monday evening.
Miss Jam Zone Pageant is slated for the National Cultural Centre (NCC) on Saturday, August 13, 2022 where the delegates will compete in the National Costume, Talent, Swimwear and other segments.
Tickets are on sale at the National Cultural Centre for $2000, $2500 and $3000.
