ABOUT BEAUTIES O During our four-year management of Miss World Canada, we’ ve conducted in-depth research into the operations and gains of five major pageants, paying particular attention to the needs of modern contestants. For over a century, pageants have been running the same way, where a single queen is elected and praised while the other contestants are sent home, their chapters closed when the event ends. While most of the world’ s pageants are continuing along a traditional path, today’ s young contestants are pushing for reform: intelligent and result-oriented, they demand substance and reject artifice in the world of pageantry.

from different countries and cultures. From the time she joins the pageant to the time of finals, the contestant gathers a mass of fans that include business people, professionals and VIPs around the world. NEW STANDARD FOR WINNERS: 6 QUEENS - We are pleased to inform you that there will be a total of 6 pageant Queens, each Queen with her own international title and each adorned by the same style of crown and sash—no more first, second, and third runner-ups! One woman will earn the title of global queen of the world and there will be five continental queens who will each gain a continent-specific title with responsibility for a special world cause. All queens’ primary function will be to work with other contestants to promote global pluralism.

Our solution? Revolutionizing the industry! BEAUTIES OF 5 CONTINENTS™ equips its young contestants with practical, effective tools that will not only open their doors to the future but establish powerful platforms for self-branding. Here are some of Beauties of 5 Continents’ features and hallmarks at a glance:

6 PRINCESSES: Princesses, like queens, will have crowns and custom sashes. Princesses’ primary function will be to work with other contestants to aid our affiliated agencies with poverty reduction efforts in various parts of the world.

INTERNATIONAL PAGEANT: B5C is an international pageant. The B5C finals for 2017 will be held on June 24, 2017 on a 7-day luxury cruise to the Caribbean Islands leaving from Miami. Future finals can be held anywhere in the world. Imagine journeying to exciting destinations like Las Vegas, Cancun, Bali, Cabo San Lucas, and more! Our pageant provides contestants with the fantastic opportunity to meet girls

30 AWARD & MEDAL WINNERS: All contestants will have the opportunity to win awards and medals. There are ten internal pageant competitions in total, each competition having a 1st, 2nd and 3rd-place winner.

How Important Is Your Health To You?

Improve your competition by decreasing stress in your life, staying positive, and having fun...

I wish you all the best of luck!

“Dr Della” Dr. Della Gerry, BSc, ND

Health Tips Decrease Stress – Many people are shallow breathers. Shallow

breathing depletes your body of oxygen and creates extra stress on your cells, while making you tired and lowering your mood. Breathing with your diaphragm helps to prevent anxiety and depression, regulates your bowels, and assist in coping with daily stressors. Practice breathing long slow breaths into your belly on a regular basis. Stay Hydrated – It is easy to get dehydrated, which creates unneces-

sary stress on your body. Food cravings can actually be from thirst, so ensure you are staying hydrated to prevent from overeating. A lack of water is more likely to happen when it is warm and you are sweating. So keeping up with your consumption is especially important in the summer months! Approximately 1L of pure water per 50lbs body weight should be consumed daily. Add more if you drink black tea, black coffee, or alcohol, as they draw water out of your body. Drinking one large glass of water as soon as you wake up can increase your energy by 10% throughout the day! However, if you have kidney dysfunction please limit your water intake. **This is considered general health advice – for any specific health concerns or treatments please see your local ND**
