Northern beauties on fleek

It's all systems go for Miss High School North, with contestants eager to strut their stuff.

The seventh annual Miss High School North will take place on 18 December at Ekamuti Lodge in Ondangwa.

The pageant is being organised by Kashipu Investment CC under the theme 'Empowering Young Women Through The Art of Beauty'.

The event is aimed at giving young girls based in the north a chance to take part in a beauty pageant, showcase their hidden talent and give them a confidence-booster.

Miss High School North also gives the northern community an opportunity to assess the potential these girls have, as well as their ability to make vital contributions to their communities. “During their campaigns the contestants will also have an opportunity to develop their mindsets, by raising awareness about contemporary issues and social ills that affect the youth,” said the founder of Kashipu Investment CC, Sandro Ithana.

Ithana said that since the commencement of the pageant in 2013, the platform has helped be the stepping-stone for models such as Ester Shifotoka, Pandeni Mvula and Baldin Uushona, who have gone on to be crowned Miss Nust 2017, Miss Plus Size 2018 and the first princess and miss personality at Miss IUM 2018, respectively.

“This is a clear indication of how serious the event is becoming and also a sign of how the event has grown to an extent that we are now producing models that can compete at national level,” said Ithana. Providing entertainment at this year's event will be Kaboy Kamakili, Buti Vuitton, Kapa Ka Mandela, Jive Jittaz, General Jittaz, Lucid Meno, Skipper Wills and Family Gang, with Fidel Nambundunga being the host. Miss Namibia 2018 Selma Kamanya will be the special guest and she will be afforded a chance to motivate the young models before the event. Tickets to Miss High School North 2019 are available at Webtickets and all Pick n Pay outlets countrywide.
