YORK POLITICS AND MODERN HISTORY GRADUATE WHO
SERVED AS AN ELECTED MEMBER OF THE UK YOUTH
PARLIAMENT HAS BEEN CROWNED MISS YORK 2020

Elizabeth Martin (21) was chosen from the auditions for Miss England 2020 and has progressed to
the national finals alongside 20 other contestants.

During the semi-finals, Elizabeth took part in a photoshoot, catwalk and interview and is
sponsored by Cetuem in the Miss England Finals. If successful in the finals of Miss England,
Elizabeth could go forward to the 70th Miss World contest in the Autumn of 2021 .

So far, she has fundraised for the National Autistic Society alongside Miss World’s ‘Beauty With a
Purpose Campaign’ and has just released a collaborative album of some of the UK’s leading
singer-songwriters to raise further funds for the competition. So far she is proving she is a Beauty
with a Purpose, the ethos of Miss England and Miss World. Elizabeth raised over £200 for the
cause earlier in the year with an acoustic gig.

An interesting fact about Elizabeth is that she served as an elected member of the UK Youth
Parliament at age 16 and has continued her youth advocacy throughout University.

All contestants who reach the Final will also be invited to participate in a Eco Fashion round, where
contestants are invited to create an outfit made from recycled materials as well as being invited to
raise funds for the Miss World charity Beauty with a Purpose. This is to help promote sustainable
fashion and to encourage changing attitudes to sustainability.
“The competition is much more than a physical beauty contest, the girls are encouraged to be
charitable, sporty and an all round good role model and are encouraged to recycle their outfits” says
Miss England national director Angie Beasley.

The Miss England national final will be announced on the 15th September 2020 at the Birmingham
Hilton Metropole.

Doctor Bhasha Mukherjee represented England at the last Miss World contest in December 2019.
The new Miss World is Toni-Anne Singh from Jamaica, who since winning has released a charity
single for Beauty with a Purpose singing a Whitney Houston classic song .
