The team of the Miss Tibet Pageant welcomed four contestants for this year’s Pageant to be held from 3 to 5 June. The preparations are complete and we are ready to put together yet another great Pageant, which will be the 14th edition since it was first started in 2002.

The four contestants are Dechen Wangmo from Mussoorie, Tenzin Dawa from New York, Tenzing Dickey from Bylakuppe, and Tenzing Sangnyi from Manali. Here are the contestant profiles.

All the contestants are bright, beautiful, and enthusiastic, and have strong connection with the Tibetan community and the free Tibet movement. They are excitedly looking forward to their time in McLeod Ganj and competing in the Pageant.

After meeting the press today, they will have a photo session with our volunteer photographer Mr Matthew and his assistant Christian. That will be followed by practice for the stage formation in the evening.

The contestants will attend the Dalai Lama teaching tomorrow morning. In the afternoon, Monika will give a workshop on Sacred Dance. There will more more practice and excursions before the Swimsuit Round on the afternoon of 3 June at Bhagsu Waterfall.

The Talk and Talent Rounds will be held on the evening of the 4th in TIPA auditorium. The Grand Finale Night with the remaining four rounds — Introduction, Gown, Traditional Costume, and Interview Rounds — will be held on the 5th evening on the TIPA grounds.

The prize of one lakh (100,000) rupees for this year’s winner has been sponsored by Tibetan businessman Jangchup Nyendak.
