Looking for Miss A&P
The annual Miss A&P Show Girls is back for 2012 with a brand new look and a new convener.
Local lawyer Arama Ngapo- Lipscombe is excited about the newlook programme.
‘‘Miss A&P Showgirls is about realising our youths’ potential and is a foundation for building strong, confident young women. We are building on the great work done by former convener Dianne Adams, and introducing new sections that will empower our contestants.’’
Mrs NgapoLipscombe said the programme will run for eight weeks starting on October 3; leading up to the crowning of Miss A&P in early December at the A&P Show.
‘‘We have introduced self defence which will be run by Toa Ara Martial Arts Centre, a makeup and hair work- shop with Waiariki Polytechnic, public speaking will also be on the agenda as well as a nutrition and healthy living workshop which will be run by Sport Waikato.’’
Regular favourites such as the wearable arts and fashion show are also on the pro- gramme. Mrs NgapoLipscombe said it was time for a ‘‘fresh start’’ and the help of former Miss A&P contestants on the Miss A&P Showgirl board, has made the task ‘‘exciting’’.
‘‘ I have formed a board with people who have experience with Miss A&P. Their exper- tise in this field has helped create an exciting new programme for this years contestants.’’
Miss A& P entrants must be between 16 to 19 years old. Registration forms at Lipscombe Law office ( opp the Post Office) from Monday to Friday, 9am till 4.30pm.
