It is with deep regret that we inform you of the cancellation Beauty by God contest 2020 - 2021, USA. Over the past few weeks, the Charitable Leonard Foundation leadership and staff have been monitoring worldwide developments related to COVID-19. With many countries and regions recommending self-quarantine and many institutions strongly advising staff, faculty and students to restrict travel, we know it is no longer practical not ethical to continue with our International Fashion contest 2020-2021.
We will inform you about Beauty by God International Fashion Contest 2021-2022.
Thank you again for you patience with us during this pandemic, please be safe!
