Miss Bolivia is an annual Bolivian beauty pageant responsible for selecting the country's representative to the Miss Universe pageant since 1959. The pageant also crowns representatives to Miss World, Miss Earth, and Miss International.

The current titleholder is Romina Rocamonje from Beni.

History[edit]

The contest was founded in 1959 and Gloria Suárez de Limpias has been the event's director since 1979. As of 2010, Bolivia has not won a Miss Universe or Miss World title.

A three-hour parade is held annually on August 5. Bolivian TV channel Unitel broadcasts it to the rest of Latin America, and cable broadcasts are available in the United States. For approximately one month, there are several preliminary events and presentations regarding the main parade.

Pageant logistics[edit]

By general rule, three major crowns are given each year, in this order: Miss Bolivia goes to Miss Universe, Miss Bolivia Mundo to Miss World, and Miss Bolivia Internacional to the Miss International contest. One of these three titleholders participates in Reina Hispanoamericana, owned by Promociones Gloria, the same group that organizes the Miss Bolivia pageant. In 2010, the third title was awarded to the Miss Earth representative, called Miss Bolivia Earth. Besides the titleholders, there are four additional runner-up positions. Representatives are also chosen for Miss Tourism Queen International and Miss Continente Americano.
