Time to choose your favourite for Miss St Helens Star
12:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Here are the contenders for the Miss St Helens Star 2013 competition, sponsored by beauty firm Renaissance.
We have had 35 entries submitted and now a public vote will narrow it down to 20 semi-finalists.
A judging panel will then whittle that number down to 12, who will go through for a live final, to take place on Friday, November 8, at the Function Room, North Road.
The event – part of the Star’s 40th birthday celebrations – includes the chance to win a contract with Angels Elite modelling agency and a professional photo shoot.
Sponsor Karen Maloney, who will also be a judge, is backing the re-launched competition through her beauty firm Renaissance.
She wants to ‘celebrate the confidence of women in our town’.
After watching the original competition more than 20 years ago, it was the feeling of nostalgia that drew Renaissance owner Karen to support this year’s celebration.
Karen (pictured left, sitting down), who has salons at College Street, St Helens, and in Prescot, said: “I remember the buzz around the competition all those years ago and I want the re-launch to be just as spectacular.
“At Renaissance we see amazing women coming in each and every day, and this competition is a great chance to celebrate the confidence women in the town have.”
The 12 finalists will visit Renaissance for some complimentary treatments to ensure they look and feel their best before the big night.
Tickets for the evening, priced £3, can be secured by contacting the Star on 01744 762742. Donations will go to Willowbrook Hospice.
