BETHLEHEM. – Lebohang Motloung (19) is Miss Dihlabeng 2015-’16. She was crowned at a glamorous event in the Bethlehem Town Hall recently.

Dieketseng Mofokeng (17) and Thandi Mashinini (21) came second and third respectively.

Motloung won participation in the Absa Readytowork stet programme, an Avusheni Computer Academy scholarship voucher, a computer from Media24 and many other prizes. Mofokeng and Mashinini were also rewarded with big prizes.

The trio were victorious in a tight contest that saw 24 finalists walking the stage on the final day.

Motloung said she was happy to have won.

“I never thought I would win it. The competition was tough and it was never easy, even in the preliminaries,” Motloung said.

She thanked the competition organisers for hosting such a big event.

“The team prepared us for a month. However, in the end one had to add something to that foundation to be a winner, because if we had stuck to what they had taught us, we would have done the same things and not have stood out.”

Shadrack Maboea, event marketer and sponsor, thanked the sponsors for making the initiative a success. He said he believed that this was the start of good things to come.

“Preparing for such a big event was not easy – actually, it was a nightmare. But we managed it, because the team was focused,” Maboea said.

He promised a bigger and better show in 2016-’17.

“We would love to have more contestants for our next edition. I think we will start to market the event as soon as possible so that we can secure more sponsors,” he said.

The contest was an initiative of the office of the executive mayor of Dihlabeng, Tjhetane Mofokeng.
