Miss Young International

In 1970 organizers of the Miss International pageant started a separate beauty contest for women aged 14 to 19.  These were held  in Japan, Philippines and South Korea.  Miss Young International was discontinued after 1983 because it became too costly for the organization to operate two contests.  
Special thanks to contributors including Orland, Tyto, Wilson, Jose Alfredo, Basilio, David & many others!
