The Pageant whose theme is Our Beauty, Our Pride, Our Heritage will also be used to highlight the plight of women and the girl-child in the county.
Miss Tourism Taita Taveta County Edition – a franchise of Miss Tourism Kenya - has been created as part of re-alignment of the Pageant to conform to the new devolved governance system in Kenya.
“This is among the first concrete ideas that Taita Taveta County has away from the politics and it will be something that can easily showcase what our county has to offer to tourists and investors,” said Ms. Faith Kavata, Miss Tourism Taita Taveta County administrator.
The winner of Miss Tourism Taita Taveta County Edition will compete with 46 other County Finalists at the Miss Tourism Kenya 2013 Finals on November 30th, 2013.
The panel of judges will look at the models demeanor, beauty, public speaking and personality among other qualities when selecting winners.
