SHILLONG, Feb 8: The first ever ‘Miss Hynniewtrep’ 2017, will be held at Bakur football ground in Dawki on February 18. Daniel Khongsit, president of Bakur Social Welfare Sports Club, Dawki, said this today.

The Sports Club informed that as a curtain raiser for the beauty pageant contest, a dancing competition will be held on February 17, with total prize money of Rs. 30, 000 for the competition and Rs.1, 00, 000 for the beauty pageant.

Addressing a news conference here on Wednesday, Khongsit said, “We want to urge all the youths from both Khasi and Jaintia Hills to come forward and participate in the beauty pageant and all the boys and girls to register for the dancing competition.”

He, however, said that only the indigenous people of Khasi and Jaintia can participate in the ‘Miss Hynniewtrep’ 2017 beauty contest.  “Many young girls from rural villages have not been exposed nor had the opportunity to participate in such beauty pageants. This is a platform for them to come and participate in the pageant,” he said. He further said if the 1st edition of ‘Miss Hynniewtrep’ 2017 is a success then the Sports Club will turn the beauty pageant into an annual event.
