The Miss Nicaragua contest is the national beauty pageant of Nicaragua and is a franchise of SILHUETAS, a modeling agency.[1] Each Nicaraguan department may choose a representative who then enters the Miss Nicaragua finals, traditionally held at the Rubén Darío National Theater. The winner is crowned at the conclusion of the final competition. The pageant has been held since 1955 and is responsible for selecting the country's representatives to Miss Universe and Miss International (amongst others). The winner goes to Miss Universe and the 1st runner-up to Miss International.[2]

Participants

Participants for the Miss Nicaragua contest must be between 18 and 25 years old, not married and have no children. After participants are chosen, 16 candidates are elected and represent their region. The majority of Miss Nicaragua winners have been from Managua.

For the past couple of years the pageant has had a theme, for 2006 it was "León, pasado maravilloso... presente esperanzador... futuro luminoso" meaning "León, wonderful past... hopeful present.. luminous future".[3]

Despite only having had only three Miss Universe Semifinalists to date; Nicaragua has done well in other international beauty pageants.
