All is set for the Miss Green and White Nigeria (MGWN) beauty pageant.
According to the founder of the project Juliet Geoffrey of 2Side Modeling Concepts; Miss Green and White Nigeria (MGWN) beauty pageant is designed to promote peace and unity and stimulate awareness on the negative and disruptive effects of violence and apathy towards the oneness of Nigeria particularly among the youth.
“The pageant will encourage entrepreneurship as unemployment has been identified as the main factor responsible for youth vulnerability to attraction of crime, violence and other social vices including terrorism. The organizers would also use this pageant as perfect medium to communicate and educate the youth on how to fit well into the society socially and economically and prepare them to become role models and proponents of peace and unity at the same time celebrating the young Nigerian women and presenting them as unique blend of beauty, elegance, intelligence and excellence,” Goeffrey noted.
The organizers also said they are currently working with the Nigeria Network of NGOs, the Nigeria Police Force and other well-meaning organization to achieve this objective with the coronation ball scheduled to take place in October 2014 to commemorate the Nigeria’s independence.
