THE annual Kouga Express Miss Matric Dance competition is back for the time and we are looking to crown the Miss Matric Dance for 2017.Local matric girls who attended their ma-tric dance this year can now start entering our competition and stand a chance to win fabulous prizes. This year we are again looking for the ma-tric girl who has the complete look to become our next Miss Matric Dance. Entrants will be judged on their overall look – including the dress, hair, make-up and accessories – so be sure to send a photo where the judges can clearly get the complete picture.A panel of judges will choose nine (9) finalists once entries have closed. The judges will also choose 10 wildcard entries and the public will have to vote for their favourite wild card, who will make up the 10th finalist for this year’s Miss Matric Dance.
