“We are looking for females aged between 18 to 25 who are interested to learn more about caring and preserving Mother Earth, to participate in this prestigious green journey from 10am to 4pm.
“A total of 16 finalists will be shortlisted. Those who are selected to be among the 16 finalists will have the opportunity to enrol themselves in various environmental activities through cultures all over the state,” she said.
Nandu added that apart from enrolling themselves in programmes which emphasize strongly on environmental protection, the participants are also required to attend various environmental activities, where they will be given the opportunity to practise and voice out their green thoughts and ideas.
The winner of Miss Earth Sabah 2011 will be appointed ambassador of the Environment Action Centre (EAC) where she will use her role to promote environmental awareness.
The event which is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment, is scheduled to commence from June 1 to 11 this year.
