Miss Suriname is a national Beauty pageant in Suriname.


Miss Suriname was held in 1951 for first time; the pageant was run by Lions International Organization until 1999. Since 1958 the winner of Miss Suriname represents her country at the Miss Universe or sometimes Miss World. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent. In 1999 is the last participation of Suriname at the Miss Universe before the local pageant absent to held the contest.[1] In 2007 after returning in new concept, Miss Suriname run by A.P.R.A (Angel's Public Relations & Administration) and decided to send its winner to Miss World.


After a long period of inactivity regarding The National Pageant, The Miss Suriname Pageant began in 2007 by A.P.R.A. (Angel's Public Relations & Administration). In addition in 2007 Miss Suriname collaborated to Miss Suriname, Little Miss Suriname and Miss Teen Model Suriname; the pageant is being national franchise holder for Miss World and Miss Earth until 2008 and Miss International until 2012.


In 2011 Miss Suriname divided to two contests which are Miss Suriname by A.P.R.A and Miss Tropical Beauties Suriname. Both of pageants have different purposes. Miss Tropical Beauties Suriname comes to promote the culture of Suriname and the winner will become a goodwill ambassador of her country; the pageant is also becoming national franchise for Miss Earth, Miss International, Miss Supranational and Miss Grand International.
