In the junior category, there are seven pairs of mothers and daughters, seven pairs of mothers and daughters in the middle category, and eight pairs of mothers and daughters in the senior category.

“I sit as a symbol, and I like the Atlantic Pearl. With the help of technology, we will present to you something that Guyana has never seen.” Ingrid Fung, mother of the pageant told the press on Tuesday.
This will be the 30th year of the Mother and Daughter Pageant, which started in 1990.
