Search for new Miss Tourism Ghana begins

The search for a new queen for this year’s Miss Tourism competition has begun and as part of efforts to select the best contestants for the pageant, the search train is back to Accra for the final audition which comes off at the Max International Hotel, East Legon, on Saturday, August 2.

The hopeful aspirants, between the ages of 18 and 24, are expected to be grilled by the judges to select the final 10 contestants for the competition.

The 10 contestants who make the cut will be housed in Accra’s premier Crown Apartamento Hotel for a three-week training boot camp.

Officials of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, the Ghana Tourism Authority, and the Ghana Tourism Federation will brief them on the nation’s tourism sector and upcoming initiatives.

Those that can best articulate and demonstrate specific regional values, including customary dances, will be chosen to face off in the September 19 grand finale at the National Theatre where the eventual winner would be selected.

“The girls do not have to hail from a region to represent it,” Mrs. Brew-Hammond, Events and Operations Director of the pageant explained.

“Whoever ultimately wins will showcase Ghana as a whole so we are looking for smart ladies who can sell Ghana effectively.”

The winner of the Miss Tourism Ghana crown will represent the nation at Miss Tourism World, and act as Ghana’s tourism and environmental youth Ambassador at official events in Ghana and internationally.

‘We are not looking for a beauty queen, we are looking for the young lady who can be trained to best represent Ghana's beauty,” Mrs Brew-Hammond stressed.
