“Confidence is Beauty” is the theme for this year’s Miss Samoa College Pageant.
Organisers say the Pageant will be an opportunity for the young girls to build their self confidence.
During a press conference yesterday, their main sponsor, Samoa Stationery and Books (S.S.A.B) offered its full support.
Sales Manager of S.S.A.B, Dora Tuiletufuga-Malele, presented a cheque of $6,000 to the Class of 1991-1994 on behalf of their Managing Director, Fiti Leung Wai.
On top of that, all eight contestants will each receive smart phones, and school stationeries worth $5,000.
Secretary of the Committee of Class 91-94, Seul Gee Samuelu acknowledged the support from S.S.A.B.
“This year; SSAB & TV1 are the Major Sponsors for the Pageant whereby eight young ladies from Year 13 will be vying for the Title through a showcase of Creative Wear, enactment of Poems and speeches in the Talent Category, Puletasi and Interview.”
Ms. Samuelu said the creative wear is a new initiative in partnership with the Water Sector Coordination Unit under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (M.N.R.E).
“They (MNRE) will be sponsoring the prize money for the Best Design for this attire as the design should promote the theme of “Water Conservation” using the concept of “Myths and Legends of Samoa,” she said.
“This partnership is an successful podium to connect with the youth and promoting “water” as a career path as they become young professionals, especially given there is a limited number of students interested in the water sciences.
“This new project also allows the opportunity for the Contestant Sponsors to also be awarded for their hard work given that they are sometimes the unsung heroes in such fundraisers.”
The Secretary went on to say that a Facebook voting for the contestants will be conducted by the WT Media.
“The Pageant through the SCOPA FB Page and this Special Prize will be awarded to Miss Popularity on the Evening.”
Since last year’s pageant the class of 91-94 the money that they receive went straight to furnishing the school’s computer lab with 30 laptops and network printer however with this year there has been a project set to fundraise on.
But according to Ms. Samuelu the money receive from this year’s pageant will go into the development of the school.
This Event is scheduled for Thursday, 15th September, 2016 at 7.00pm at the Samoa College Hall at Vaivase Tai on the theme of “Confidence is Beauty.”
