The Wisconsin International University in collaboration with Media Empire will tomorrow, Friday, April 3 organize this year’s edition of its annual Face of Wisconsin beauty pageant at the Guest Hotel at East Legon in Accra.

The pageant, according to the organizers, is aimed at encouraging intellectual competition among the students.

The 8 beautiful ladies who have made it to the finals will put up various performances alongside hiplife artistes like Echo, Okyeame Kwame, Sherifa Gunu and a host of other stars.

The pageant, which is under the theme ‘Unveiling Beauty Through Intelligence,’ will provide a platform for students to engage in healthy learning in a competitive atmosphere.

The winner of the pageant will walk home with a laptop, a cash prize of GH˘700 and serve as the ambassador of Wisconsin. She will also take home some souvenirs from the sponsors of the programme, and represent the school at the Face of Tertiary pageantry.

The 1st runner-up will also receive a desktop computer and a cash of GH˘400 while the 2nd runner-up picks a cash prize of GH˘200, a mobile phone as well as other souvenirs.

The winner will be supported by the school to take up a Hepatitis project to create awareness about the disease in the Agbogba community where the Wisconsin International University is situated.

“Hepatitis is one of the dangerous diseases, yet only few people have knowledge about it in Ghana.
The winner will be going to schools in the Agbogba community to educate the kids as a way of curbing the disease,” a member of the organizing team explained.
