    Background: VISNEWS filmed in an Athens suburb during the election of "Miss Greece" and "Star Hellas" June 20. "Miss Greece" - Europe" beauty contest, and "Star Hellas" - 21-year-old Soitsa Kurikli will fly to Long Beach, California, for the "Miss Universe" election.

    Prizes were presented to the two winners by the well-known movie stars waiter Chiari and Kerima.

    The beauty contest was well attended by Athenian society, but was frowned on by an anti-beauty-contest religious organisation, and the Greek Orthodox Church.
