Auditions for the 1st Agro beauty pageant in Ghana, Miss Agriculture Ghana, is scheduled for Saturday, August 11, 2018, at the Resource Center of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

Miss Agriculture Ghana is an initiative of the Uniting Women for Agricultural Development (UWAD) Foundation in collaboration with the Women in Agricultural Development (WIAD) Under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

Agriculture is the backbone of our country, and due to the strong interest of women in most of the agric value chain, it has become important to uphold and present the attractive nature of agriculture to the youth, especially young women.

It has become essential to raise a generation of women who will take Agribusiness like any other profitable venture or as an alternative venture in a bid to create more job opportunities for women.

This year the winner of Miss Agriculture Ghana gets 10,000 Ghana Cedis to finance her Agric project and other attractive prizes from sponsors.

To be part of the pageant, you must be a female between ages of 18 and 35 and have an innovative idea or project that can solve a problem along the agricultural value chain and create more jobs for women.

More information can be obtained via email to missuwad@gmail.com.

You can also call  0541956735 or 0240042313 to speak to organisers of the pageant.
