The annual Western Port Festival returns on February 24-26 and with it, the Miss Western Port Pageant.
Mornington Peninsula Magazine caught up with this year’s finalists ahead of the February 25 judging. Miss Western Port 2017 will be announced on the RPP FM Main Stage on Saturday, February 25, 1.30pm - 2pm.
The mission of the Miss Western Port Pageant is to create opportunities for local young women. Entrants are judged on their community service involvement, ability to connect with people from all walks of life, poise, presence, interviewing skills and confidence. “She must be an all-rounded woman who has a desire to make a positive impact in her community while being a positive role model to others,” director Hannah Swinnerton explains.
*The theme for the 2017 Western Port Festival is ‘Superheroes’ (a superhero can be a Mum, Dad, emergency services worker, volunteer and more). More at westernportfestival.org.au
