In Tortola, VI The Word going around is that there will not be a 2018 Miss BVI Pageant.

It appears that there are a number of reasons why this is the case, including lack of contestants and lack of funds, as the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) leaving the country broke can be felt in many areas.

Many have also claimed that festival in general has declined under Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL), the Minister for Education and Culture, and that he has used divisive politics even in his heading of this area of his portfolio.

It is unclear when was the last time there was not a Miss BVI Queen show, something that is such a staple to the Virgin Islands’ Annual Emancipation celebration, according to one senior NDP source.

However, there will be a Miss World BVI and they have three contestants so far, according to the same source.

Further, a 2018/19 Miss BVI is expected to be coronated around August 5, 2018, in other words,  one will be appointed without a fair and transparent competition. It is also unclear who will do the picking, for the coronation.

The Ministry of Culture and the Virgin Islands Festival and Fairs Committee did not immediately return calls or answer our inquiries.
