The 40th edition of Miss Nigeria pageant is just around the corner and thirty eight contestants that will represent the rich heritage of the thirty-six states in Nigeria including the FCT have been unveiled.

These contestants were those successful candidates who passed through the audition stages held in the four different audition locations (Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Lagos).

They left for camp immediately after the auditions and have been involved in various activities ranging from a three-day intensive empowerment training at NEPC (Nigerian Export Promotional Council), etiquette classes with Janet Adetu and fun choreography sessions.

Other activities planned for camp are the international beach soccer courtesy of PowerHorse,  courtesy/facility visits and mentorship by a renowned WIMBIZ member, amongst others.

The selected contestants will be judged based on etiquette, daily tasks, punctuality and also the Green Girl challenge.
