ELY youngster Lauren Smith has been selected to take part in a worldwide beauty pageant competition.

The Lantern School pupil has been chosen by the Face Of The Globe organisation to compete at a regional heat being held in London on September 1.

The contest has four age categories ranging from five years and up, and Lauren, who is 7-years-old, will be in the mini category.

If she is selected as one of the five representatives from that group, she will be invited to Disneyland Paris in October to compete against girls from all over the world.

All money raised at the pageant will go to the Rainbow Child Foundation, which was founded by X Factor and Dancing On Ice star Chico Slimani.

You can follow Lauren’s progress in the contest at www.FaceOfTheGlobe.com as full results will be published on the website.
