First and foremost, let’s clarify this:  the title “Miss Haiti” is given to any female contestant age between 19 and 27 who is single, never been married or divorced and never have given birth. Usually, that title is followed by the name of the pageant that person will be competing in.  For example, “Miss World Haiti ” is a Miss Haiti who will be competing in Miss World Pageant.  More and more pageants are also created for women who are married and have kids.  It’s easy to spot them because the title is different.  You will see “Mrs”  with the name of the country.  There are also pageants for babies, children, pre-teens, teens and also for seniors.

Now that we got this out of the way, let’s start by discovering four of the most important international beauty pageants that Haiti has competed in.
