The Grand Prize winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize, a modeling contract with NEXT Model Management (valued at $75,000), a trip for two to Miami for a professional photo shoot and a celebration in her honor. She will also appear in a national Cover Girl advertisement in PEOPLE En Español's November 2000 issue.
