HARRISMITH. – Mr and Miss Spring 2015 will be crowned on Thursday (24/09) at the Harrismith Town Hall when contestants battle it out for the first prize.

All 12 females and 8 males are expected to shine on the stage during this contest.

The contest will start at 10:00 and tickets are selling at R40 per person. Very Important Person (VIP) tickets are sold at R150.

There are prizes galore since the event is sponsored by many business people.

The King and Queen will walk away with a scholarship to further their studies at the University of the Free State (UFS) Qwaqwa Campus. There are also more prizes to be won.

People are expected to come in numbers to support the event which was organised by the Tshiame Youth Centre.

Something fascinating is that the contestants are all from Harrismith and the surrounding areas such as Intabazwe, Tshiame and Makgolokweng.

That means people will have a chance to witness contestants that they know on the stage.

Lekgotla “Fish” Mokoena, the pageant organiser, has promised one of the best shows ever. He said they had assembled a good team that would give the judges a headache.

“We hosted about three auditions ahead of the main event. So, the finalists are those who managed to break through at the auditions,” he said.

He said the contest was aimed at identifying talent in their areas.

“We are hoping to produce some girls who will represent us in some of the best or well-known competitions in the country. We are going to make sure that we give them training afterwards and encourage them to take part in other contests. We do not want them to be forgotten after this one,” he said.

Mokoena said they were hoping to learn from this because they were planning to make it an annual event
