WINDHOEK – The first audition of this year’s Miss High School North will be held at Gwashamba Mall in Ondangwa, Oshana Region on September 1, with the main event scheduled for December 19 at the Ekamuti Lodge in the northern part of the country. The auditions start at 09h00.
Organisers are looking for models from different high schools in the north to attend the audition and to register to take part in the much-anticipated competition. Miss High School North is one of the pageants that is becoming popular every year, while attracting more young people who want to be professional models in the future. This year the event is aimed at raising funds to help less fortunate children in the northern regions and to give young girls in high schools a modelling platform giving them self-confidence and empowering them when it comes to making important life decisions.
Sandro Ithana from Kashipu Investment cc that is organising the event says it also gives the community an opportunity to truly see all the talents possessed by these young women. “We want these young women to know what they mean to the nation and we believe that by celebrating them through our pageant, they are able to see that they are the future,” says Ithana. He adds that they expect up to 45 models from 15 high schools in the north on audition day. Fifteen models will be selected for the final event.
