The fifth edition of the Miss Teen Nigeriabeauty pageant (not to be confused with the Miss Nigeria Teen pageant) is set to hold on Saturday, September 1, 2012 at Bamboo Hall, Ogba, Ikeja, Lagos.
The event which started in 2002, brings teenagers together in a decent competition solely with the consent of parents, according to the organizers .
‘The pageant is embedded with invaluable lessons on etiquettes, morality as well as social and educational issues. It celebrates the Nigerian teenager from different parts of the country, irrespective of their background, bringing them together in a convivial and relaxed environment’, CEO of Miss Teen Nigeria Talent & Beauty Pageant, Mrs Robina Ehana says.
Ehana is a past winner of the Mrs Nigeria USA beauty pageant.
The pageant which has been attracting lots of teenage girls across the nation will see the top three winners represent Nigeria in international beauty pageants later in the year in USA, Guatemala, Argentina and Jamaica.
They will also work as ambassadors for charity organisations that care about the abandoned and less privileged children in Nigeria.
The pageant is for teenagers between the ages of 13 – 19.
