Miss Progress International : Info

Miss Progress International is an International beauty pageant that aims at issues like Environment, Health, Human Rights and Cultural Integration. The idea behind establishing the pageant was to integrate social contents and target on the issues that have an international relevance. In 2010 Associazione Culturale in Progress started a pageant in Italy, dedicated to Environment, Health, Human Rights and Cultural Integration and named it as Miss Progress International.

While commencing the pageant, it was decided that the pageant will work on the format in which women around the world could be given the role of Ambassador of Progress to realize a format in agreement with each one’s culture, traditions and religion. The pageant has been held only twice, ever since its establishment, on 2010 and 2014.

Miss Progress International is different from the usual and standard beauty pageants as it concentrates on the ideas and concepts of the contestants at the fields listed below - 

- Integration of cultures

- Environment

- Health

- Human Rights

The delegates have to work on the projects listed above and the same is evaluated by a panel of jury based on the project’s feasibility and contents. For each of the listed fields, a winner is selected and the idea is brought to the attention to the world. In addition to the winners for each category, an overall winner is selected and there are no runner-ups. The winners are hence awarded with the following titles - Miss Progress International, Miss Progress Health, Miss Progress Environment, Miss Progress Integration of Cultures and Miss Progress Human Rights.
