The theme for this year's event is “Peace Building and Development”.
According to the organizers, “this is not just another beauty Pageant, this event was borne out of the idea of promoting Peace in the ECOWAS Sub-region by reaching out to the youth and bringing ECOWAS closer to the people”.
Auditions were held earlier on at the Golden Tulip to choose the ladies who will participate in the grand finale. “In addition to being beautiful; it was very important for each participant to have a good educational background, a pleasant personality and a great ability to express herself”, says the ceo of 702 Productions.
The winner and also the first runner-up will be travelling to represent Ghana in the international ECOWAS Peace Pageant to be held in Freetown, Sierra Leone. They will meet and compete with 28 ladies from the 14 other member states of the ECOWAS Sub-region.
