The XIV International Children's Beauty Contest was held in Bulgaria

Children aged 4 to 17 years old took part in the contest "LITTLE MISS & MISTER GALAXY 2024", held in the Bulgarian resort town of Bansko. At the end of the ski season, competitions and festive events are held here every day, attracting many tourists.  The first weekend of April was no exception. Skiers and snowboarders competed in the mountains, and on the city square you could admire the participants of the beauty contest. Representatives of Armenia, Bulgaria, Brazil, Georgia, Malta and South Africa, dressed in bright costumes, presented their countries, treating the audience to dishes of national cuisine. 

The World Children's Beauty and Talent Contest is being held for the 14th time. 10 of them were organized by the Municipality of Bansko with the sponsorship of local entrepreneurs. To our questions about the attractiveness of Bansko, the participants of the competition together pointed to the sources of drinking water spouting directly from the walls of the buildings, as well as the majestic mountains surrounding the resort from all sides. 

During the competition shows, the mini-beauties paraded along the catwalk with adult seriousness, demonstrated their musical and vocal talents, danced and performed acrobatic routines worthy of professionals.

A solid jury, represented by famous couturiers, choreographers and winners of adult beauty contests, appreciated the efforts of the applicants. Each participant was awarded with a gift, a diploma or a prize in one or another nomination. The winner in the category "The most charming and talented" was 5-year-old representative of Malta Elena Attard. She also won an informal audience award.
