Hannah Horton will be battling out for the title and sash at the finals, which will be held on January 10 next year.
The 18-year-old, who is in her first year studying PE and Dance at Worcester University, said she has never previously entered such competitions and was delighted to be asked to take part.
And, as part of the challenge and to help raise vital funds for the competition charity ‘Beauty With A Purpose’, she will be doing a 12-hour dance-a-thon at her university on Saturday, December 12.
She said: “I have never done anything like this before but I was approached about taking part and invited along to the audition and interview.
“I did some research about what it was all about and found that it is more than just a beauty pageant – particularly with the charity aspect.
“So I went along, had a great time and was selected for the finals in January.
