Fifteen contestants head to final in Miss Grand Sabah 2017

27th March, 2017

By DEIDRE ILONA ANDREW

KOTA KINABALU: Fifteen finalists will compete in Miss Grand Sabah 2017 to represent Sabah in Miss Grand International 2017.

State pageant director, Severinus Nain said that the programme aims to raise awareness among the public about the values of humanity and peace, in line with the Miss Grand International’s motto “Stop the War and Violence”.

“We will choose the best one to represent Sabah to compete at the national level, and then the international level which will be held in Vietnam in July this year.

“The organisers have also agreed to hold a charity dinner in order to contribute to selected welfare organisations in Sabah, with focus on children in orphanages who have suffered violence in the past,” he said.

Besides promoting the culture of Sabah, Severinus stated that this programme was also one of the best platforms to expose locals modelling talents.

According to him, what was unique about the programme was that besides having judges from different professions, the votes can also be assessed through the sale of the tickets.

“The audience can purchase the ticket for as low as RM100 (silver ticket) and up to RM300 (VIP ticket). One of the participants who receives the highest votes is eligible for the Top 8 list, while the other seven are selections from the judges.”

Among the fifteen finalists, thirteen of the contestants were selected through a boothcamp audition, while the remaining two, will be selected through social media in a ‘wildcard’ session.

The programme, which will be held at Pacific Sutera Harbour on April 29, is expected to be officially launched by the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datuk Maximus Ongkili.
