Everybody is praising what we have done so far. From the auditions, recruitment and preparations towards this launch, everything has been great.”
Mr. Tofik told www.sportsinghana.com: “Everybody is talking about style, custome, the girls’ intelligence and even the catwalk today, everything has improved. People are praising it, it could be our biggest and best competition by a distance.”
Indeed aside the ultimate prize for the 2013 Miss Teen Ghana, other complimentary award categories have been instituted to inspire and bring out the very best in all the contestants all season long. Miss Beach Beauty, Miss Beauty with a Purpose, Miss Top Model, Best Regional Presentation, Best Regional Costume, Miss Beauty and Miss Personality are all up for grabs along the way.
“We are camping the girls during which we will organize a lot of programmes at various locations to see the very best worthy of this year’s crown. It’s not just about being beautiful outside, we want to see who is beautiful inside,” Mr. Tofik explained.
He enunciated further: “So we will take them to a village where there is no light or any amenities, let them live with the villagers so we will see. Then there is also the Miss Personality which will be voted by the contestants themselves for the one person they see as most unique. There are a lot of incentives and attractive events this year and we can’t wait for September 13.”
