Miss Ghana 2017 pageant, dubbed, ‘Miss Ghana 60 Years On’ was launched on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel, Accra.

This year’s edition marks 60 years since Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah initiated the pageant in 1957 which saw Ms. Monica Amekoafia from then Trans Volta Togoland (Volta Region) become the first-ever Miss Ghana.

Miss Ghana pageant, has over the years carved an impressive niche as a pageant that generates awareness of various socio-economic problems and collaborates with government institutions and corporate firms in sending relief to various deserving communities across the country.

It has actively been involved in providing meaningful and lasting solutions to most of the social interventions embarked on.

In line with the core objectives of the Foundation, the Miss Ghana Organization has always been choosing personalities who best fit the agenda.

In order to win the bragging rights to be called ‘Miss Ghana’, one must be primed, have leadership and strategic skills, possess the passion to help others, and must be ready at all times to confidently represent the nation with pride.

Miss Ghana 60 Years On is not all about the glitz, ‘glam’, and the many privileges that come with the crown. It comes with an ambassadorial role that involves lots of work – joining other enterprising ladies to bring change to communities.

The role of the Queen is also to serve as a role model who aids in generating support for the underprivileged in societies to get access to quality education, health, and a good standard of living.
