CIPA has become a sponsor for the Miss Cook Islands Association (MCIA) pageant 2015. CIPA’s arrangement with MCIA will see the winner of the Miss Cook Islands pageant and each of four runners-up receiving Avaiki Black Pearl jewellery as part of their prize package.
In addition, CIPA will provide Cook Islands pearls for Miss Cook Islands to wear at official events and functions both on and off shore during her reign. The highlight of this Miss Cook Islands’ reign will be the Miss World event in 2016. The first Runner Up, (known as Miss Earth Cook Islands) will represent the Cook Islands at the Miss Earth pageant 2016. CIPA will broker the Cook Islands Black pearl jewellery that will be worn by both.
CIPA Board and personnel are very excited and consider this sponsorship to be a great opportunity for global marketing exposure for Cook Islands Pearls.
