ABOUT MISS CARIFIN
In 2004, the CariFin Games proudly introduced a segment to its overall competition – highlighting the most athletic females within Trinidad and Tobago’s financial sector, entitled ‘Miss CariFin’.
The Miss CariFin title has been awarded thus far, to fourteen of the most outstanding women throughout the years, who demonstrated significant levels of physical and mental fitness, both prior to and during the club’s main event, CariFin’s Family Day.
This year – 2018, the Miss CariFin contestants are not only required to undergo mental and physical challenges, but will be introduced to a new category which engages their sense of style.
Additionally, apart from the winner being a CariFin’s ‘poster child’ for Health and Wellness – encouraging her colleagues to adopt a more active lifestyle, while she continues to embrace and share the club’s values of FUN, FITNESS AND FRIENDSHIP – she can also become a brand ambassador for a leading sport-gear company.
The Miss CariFin competition has, to date, blossomed into the most highly-anticipated event throughout the Games

1) PARTICIPATION POINTS – PP –10points
Each contestant is encouraged to take part in as many of the events leading up to the main event — the Family Day — as points will be awarded for her participation. There are 10 events, and Miss CariFin’s participation also gains points towards her team’s overall score.
