Three winners for Miss Okinawa 2014 title

And the winners are…Keiko Takaesu, Yui Uehara and Chika Nago.

The three Okinawa ladies have been chosen Miss Okinawa 2014 in competition at the Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan earlier this month.  The annual competition was conducted by the Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau, with winners chosen in three separate categories.

A 19-year-old college student ,Keiko Takaesu, was chosen Miss Sky Blue,  while a 23-year-old restaurant employee, Yui Uehara, earned the Miss Cobalt Blue crown.  A 29-year-old company employee, Chika Nago, picked up the Miss Green Gracious title.

Together, the three winners will serve as the Okinawa Prefecture goodwill tourism ambassadors starting next January.

A total of 76 applicants competed for the Miss Okinawa titles.  The three finalists were chosen from ten finalists who worked their way through a second round of competition.
