Miss Matric Dance entries open

THE annual Kouga Express Miss Matric Dance competition is back for the fourth time and we are again looking to crown the Miss Matric Dance for 2018.

Local matric girls who attended their matric dance this year can now start entering our competition and stand a chance to win fabulous prizes.

This year we are again looking for the matric girl who has the complete look to become our next Miss Matric Dance.

Entrants will be judged on their overall look – including the dress, hair, make-up and accessories – so be sure to send a photo where the judges can clearly get the complete picture. A panel of judges will choose nine (9) finalists once entries have closed.

The judges will also choose 10 wild card entries and the public will have to vote for their favourite wild card on Facebook, who will make up the 10th finalist for this year’s Miss Matric Dance.

The list of prizes will be announced within the coming weeks, but entries are already open.

The competition is not open for voting by the public, except for the wild card finalists who will be voted for by the public on Facebook by means of “likes”.
