Mr & Miss Inter High/Primary: Entries awaited to empower learners

2018-02-15 06:00

The Mr & Miss Inter High 2018 initiative is not a beauty pageant, but an opportunity for learners to experience new aspects of their lives.

With experiences like a boot camp, photoshoots, hiking, a collect-a-can charity event and a creativity session where learners need to design themed outfits out of recycled material, candidates are in for an unforgettable adventure.

The event is organised by Lynn Liberty, a former Mrs Commonwealth SA runner-up. She commenced with the annual Mr & Miss Inter High in 2012.

“This is not a beauty pageant. It is about empowering, developing and creating diversity among the young ones.

“When you work toward a goal, you tend to appreciate your efforts. But when titles are handed to you, it will be taken for granted.

“I started this initiative for our local youth. To offer an opportunity to empower them, to help develop their talents and also to contribute in a holistic way to the community they live in,” said Lynn, who has been invited by I Do Magazine to be a host at its awards evening at Emperors Palace.

“I gained so much knowledge through the Mrs Commonwealth pageant, as a participant, official judge and pageant director, and therefore I wish to share it in the community I live in.”

Lynn said she initially commenced with a Miss Inter High initiative, but it boomed to the extent that she started Mr Inter High too.

“Now I am proud to announce that our primary schools came on board and boasts its own show, Miss & Master Inter Primary.”

The initiative is open to any learners interested to entering.

High school entrants:

Grade 10 and 11 boys and girls may enter the high school category (entries close March 3rd). The entry fee is R150 and all entrants will be part of the activities. Interviews for the top 12 will be on May 5th. The initiative will culminate in the main event on Youth Day, June 16th, at the Uitenhage Town Hall at 19:00.

Primary school entrants:

The Miss & Master Inter Primary event will be held at the Uitenhage Town Hall on June 15th at 16:00. Entries are R100 per participant and the closing date to enter is March 3rd.

¦Entry forms are available at the UD Express in Graaff Reinet Road or by contacting Lynn Liberty at 081 410 2685 or Zoey Liberty at libertyfoundation8@gmail.com
