Miss St Julians, Hannah Giacchino, was crowned Miss Malta 2020 last Friday, February 28 at the Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre (MFCC) in Attard. She succeeds last year’s winner Miss Malta 2019 Alexia Tabone.
Hannah will now prepare to represent Malta at the Miss Earth 2020 pageant later this year.
Miss Attard, Nicole Agius, was in second place while Miss Qrendi, Amanda Bezzina, was in third place. They were crowned Miss Republic of Malta 2020 and Miss Tourism Malta 2020, respectively.
Due to a mix-up during the announcement of winners, Miss Sliema, Natalya Galdes, was mistakenly proclaimed as Miss Republic of Malta 2020 (second place).
Miss Malta organizers took to social media to release an official statement on the mix-up issue.
The organizers said, “It is truly unfortunate that a mistaken result was proclaimed on the night as a result of human error. The officials of Miss Malta 2020 and everyone involved in the final proclamation of results would like to publicly apologize for any distress caused.”
