”The Brand Director said the amount is to encourage more young ladies who may not have the financial means to participate in the contest to do so

“I am therefore, encouraging more young girls to embrace this exceptional opportunity of free registration,” He said.

Emmanuel said that the idea behind organising the Queen Queen Of South East Nigeria contest by the Newsland Integrated Media Service, is to enable young ladies of today get prepared for the future, reawaken their cultural identity and imbibe decent morals in them.

As a cultural promoter and ambassador, I encourage young girls to embrace decent and culturally edifying outfits and brands.

“A lot of morals have been lost, the new generation of women don’t have much values for themselves and the Contest project is trying to instill back those values.

” Values as selflessness, caurage and discipline, are what a Queen is to exhibited in her lifetime,” she said.

She noted that the vision of the Contest, was to bring back those unique values associated with the Pageant, through the cultural pageant.

She said that the curent queen, Nnenna Offodile , a final year student of the tansia University was crowned.

Queen Clara Offodile, who is the Founder of Clara Care Foundation said the cultural contest, first of its kind, was to boost our culture and tradition, especially among youths.

“The contest is open to young ladies from ages 16 years to 26years, of which at least one of their parents must be of Igbo lineage from Anambra, IMO, Enugu, Ebonyi and Abia states,” she told pressmen.

She also said that “the winner of the contest would become the cultural ambassador, in addition to the gifts, wardrobe allowance among other gifts.
