Search is on for Miss Win­ter

The Rep - - YOUNG REP - By Loyiso Dyongman

THE Youth in Ac­tion De­vel­op­ment Fo­rum has in­vited pupils from the Chris Hani dis­trict to en­ter the Miss Win­ter com­pe­ti­tion that will be hosted at the town hall in Queen­stown in July.

Or­gan­iser Azikiwe Xashimba said the con­tes­tants would par­tic­i­pate in cat­e­gories like singing, danc­ing, po­etry and art.

Spon­sor­ship chal­lenges had re­stricted ef­forts to de­velop the event, but thanks to spon­sors, the fo­rum had de­cided to go ahead with the pageant this year.

“We have pro­duced mod­els like Avu­mile Qongqo who has won beauty pageants and par­tic­i­pated in the Miss South Africa pageant. She also par­tic­i­pated in the 2001 Face of Africa fi­nal at the Sun City Su­perbowl.”

The aim of the pageant was to de­velop as­pir­ing mod­els and to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for them.

“We urge busi­ness peo­ple to sup­port us as we are not do­ing this for our own ben­e­fit, but for the pupils of the dis­trict,” said Xashimba.
