MODELS aspiring to showcase their talent to the world and become ambassadors of preserving the Earth now have a great opportunity, with entries open for the 2016 Miss Earth South Africa competition.

In South Africa, the pageant celebrates its 13th year of empowering women to become advocates for waste management, recycling, climate change, food security, water stewardship and energy efficiency.

Entries close on 8 April for this year. Potential entrants are advised to seize this life changing opportunity to apply.

Applicants can access application forms on the official website: Applicants will be notified once their applications have been received.

To further enlighten applicants about exciting prospects in the Miss Earth SA pageant, national workshops and auditions will be held weekly across the country at Tsogo Sun venues. The workshops will be during May. The workshops will include a green minded approach to sharing the journey of being a Miss Earth ambassador, a key focus on waste management, separation at source, recycling, climate change and food security.

A project day is scheduled for each region so that the participants are able to engage with the community and make a direct impact. Each young woman goes away having grown, having learnt and seeing that they can be the difference.

The programme is endorsed by the Department of Environmental Affairs and the Department of Tourism. The initiatives are run alongside municipalities and corporates that are seeking to impact the communities around them.
