Contestants are flocking to enter the fourth annual Miss Hmong Laos contest, which will be held in December this year.
The Miss Hmong Laos contest includes various performances to demonstrate the identity and culture of the Hmong ethnic group, in order to spotlight their cultural heritage in Laos and on the international stage.
Director of Lao Trading and Mineral Processing Co. Ltd, and president of the Miss Hmong Laos Contest, Mr. Thongvilay Lidthideth, says that the purpose of the Miss Hmong Laos contest is to provide an opportunity for Hmong youth to participate in positive activities.
“Furthermore, it is also a way for talented young Hmong people to demonstrate their abilities,” says Mr. Thongvilay.
The contest has developed over the years, and 2020 will see a much larger event than previous years.
Applications remain open to all Lao Hmong around the country from 24 November 2019, with the final contest to run from 27 December 2019 to 5 January 2020.
