Kamie Crawford, Miss Teen USA 2010, provided her autograph card for me back when the Miss USA pageant worked more closely with the program. These were back in the days where a beauty pageant podcast was a fairly rare thing.

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Excited to introduce celebrity judge Ashley Nemeth who will be joining our judging panel this weekend at the Mrs. Canada Globe Pageant. Ashley Nemeth is recognized as a vocal advocate who breaks down barriers for the blind and partially sighted community. As a role model she is breaking down barriers and stigmas and misconceptions and addressing issues that her community faces by speaking publicly to the media, as a motivational speaker, a CNIB spokesperson, CNIB staff member, on her blog (blindmovingon.com), Facebook page, Twitter page, YouTube channel, becoming a correspondent for AMI, and volunteering for fundraising events, running a Youth Leadership program, doing eye safety presentations. She is also a leader by example and represents the ‘possibilities’ for people with sight issues by achieving a high level of independence and mastering living life to it’s fullest, not letting disability determine what she can and can’t do. #mrscanada #mrsglobe #mrscanadaglobe #beauty #philanthropy #blind #beautifulontheinside

Mrs. Canada Globe Announce New Format to National Pageant

Blind Judge Joining Judging Panel for Mrs. Canada Globe Pageant

REGINA, SK,

The Executive Planning team of Mrs. Canada Globe (www.mrscanadaglobe.com) has turned up the competition for 2018.  In the past few years Canada has placed in the top 10 at the Mrs. Globe competition in China, and they want to move up the ranks.

“This year is going to be exciting competition.  We began a new partnership with the Your Time Women’s Empowerment Foundation who suggested we add a series of questions in the preliminaries for the candidates says Kimberly Castle, National Director of Mrs. Canada Globe.  “Our judging panel needs to get to know our candidates earlier in the competition and be confident that they can represent Canada on the international stage.”

Working alongside Kimberly is Lisa Peters as Executive Producer of Mrs. Canada Globe 2018 and together they have decided that our viewers need to understand this pageant is more than a beauty contest.  Mrs. Globe winners are well educated with strong communication skills and incredible leadership qualities.  Overall first impressions are important, and the ability to answer questions and engage the audience weighs heavily.

Self-confidence comes out in on-stage presence, and more importantly it comes out in voices.  In the preliminary competition, the ladies are judged 40% their Personality Profile, along with Evening wear at 30% and Swimsuit at 30%.  But for the Finals, all previous scores are discarded, and the judges are scoring 50% on overall impression and 50% on the On-Stage Question.  So, to ensure a strong winner, Castle & Peters decided to bring in a judge that cannot see them, but only hear them.  Ashley Nemeth is legally Blind.

Ashley Nemeth is recognized as a vocal advocate who breaks down barriers for the blind and partially sighted community. Ashley’s vision problems began early in childhood. A genetic disease called ocular albinism, which results in a lack of pigmentation in the iris and retina needed for normal vision, and other eye issues meant what little sight she had slowly diminished. She got her first pair of glasses at age three. By the time she was a teen, she’d lost most of her vision. Today at 31, Nemeth can only perceive light.

As a role model she is breaking down barriers and stigmas and misconceptions and addressing issues that her community faces by speaking publicly to the media, as a motivational speaker, a CNIB spokesperson and staff member, on her blog (www.blindmovingon.com), Facebook page, Twitter page, and YouTube channel. She is also a leader by example and represents the ‘possibilities’ for people with sight issues by achieving a high level of independence and mastering living life to its fullest, not letting disability determine what she can and can’t do.

“We are very excited to have Ashley join our panel of judges, she brings a guarantee against unintentional bias.”, says Peters.

Preliminaries will be held on Friday, February 9 at the What Women Want event at the new International Trade Centre, Evraz Place, the finals will be held on Sunday, February 11 from 12 noon to 2pm, same location.  Admission is free with your entry to the What Women Want event (www.whatwomenwantevent.com).
