MISS LEBANON EMIGRANT PAGEANT?
Lebanon is rich in its landscape, vibrant in its cultural and artistic endeavours, and progressive in its business ventures. On the social front, Lebanon has been spearheading many types of pageants that can be added to its list of international exchange projects. Among others, there exists a MISS LEBANON EMIGRANT PAGEANT.
The objective of this pageant is to bring women of Lebanese background living outside their homeland closer to their origins, and to foster a greater appreciation for Lebanon and its people. It is also a unique opportunity for Lebanese living abroad to come together in a unifying event to share similar experiences and challenges in an atmosphere of congeniality and sportsmanship.
Four cities (Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal) in Canada have been selected by the Miss Lebanon Emigrant Pageant in Lebanon to host a pageant in each of these cities, and to choose a representative for each city. Three representatives from Canada will then participate in the pageant in Lebanon.
